Tutankhamon's Golden Mask - right cheek and forehead

I painted this much today. The right cheek is in bright light and this makes is almost colorless. It does have some yellowish hues but the photo does not bring those out. (Could not use flashlight on wet oil paint, the glare would have been too strong)

The left cheek will have much stronger yellow color and strong shadows. The surface of the mask has these very thin "scratch-marks" (for the lack of a better word) and I tried to show those also.
