A Little Lower - Test Proof

As I've developed my cutting skill, the selection of layer colors has proven to make an enormous difference in how the work is read at a distance.  Because of this, when working with new colors, several tests are needed to be sure that each shade is appropriate both to the others and to the image.

This cutting was done as an experiment in golden-brown earth tones.  I suspect the same image cut in blues would give it a substantially different appearance.  Once I haven't ruled out exploring.

I do not know the model nor the photographer.  This image was cropped down from a much larger one, found on a human-art blog.
