Coloured Portrait 2 (Learning Subsurface Scattering)

This one I had to again start in black and white. I really struggle on tonal values in colour.  I had had painted this once and posted on Facebook and it seemed to be missing something and that was Subsurface scattering.  This is where the light and shadow meet and the light is absorbed in to the skin and kind makes this red/orange glow that you see commonly in ears and hands when put infront of a bright light.
