Girl on a Bicycle WIP2

I haven't got the 'zing' in the dress that I wanted. I used mauve as the complimentary colour to the yellow for the shadows but this has cooled the overall effect so next I am going to try some warm brown in the shadows and a glaze of warmer yellow on the sunny bits. This is the first high contrast portrait I have attempted and I am being over cautious with the contrast, I need to be brave and just go for it. All is not lost.....yet!
