I seem to go easier on myself when painting a face that's in shadow rather than brightly lit. Maybe it's trying to figure out cast shadows on an illuminated face that gives me fits. Also we see here more of my subconscious preference for putting cool colors in the foreground and warm colors in the background, which is pretty much the opposite of what they usually teach in art class (warm colors draw the eye, they would say, so you'd want to use them on your main subject(s)).
