Color block

I'm just about finished blocking in the large areas of color and I'm very satisfied with the overall color feel of the painting. Now I am heading in for some secondary colors and balancing the contrast. This consists primarily of beefing up the shadows with a darker values of warm colors. I'm also setting up a depth structure with color. The shadows of items in the foreground reflect more blue, but the shadows become more and more purple and then violent as they recede into the background.
