Modelling features outdoors in shadow is very challenging as it is necessary to work with a very narrow range of values and use color temperature, as opposed to value changes, to help differentiate various planes of the face. The planes that face upward tend to reflect the cool bluish tones of the sky, while the planes facing down reflect the greenish-yellow of the grass. Light is bouncing everywhere, is very intense and you rarely paint anything in the local color.
