Simple Triad

I used a simple triad of almost only ultramarine blue, alizarin crimson, and  quinacridone gold. The quinacridone gold being an earthy tone does not create the brighter flesh tones that I prefer. The bottom painting was done a while ago but I wanted to look at them together to compare the differences in saturation.
