Continuing to explore the human face, I did
some research on skin tones when working on this painting .
There is so much excellent information
and many demos on the internet concerning this topic much of it by known artists
who specialize in portraits and/or figures. You Tube, Artists Network, Pinterest and several helpful articles and books provided very relevant advice.
There is so much to learn in painting portraits/figures. I am awestruck
by the works I see by so many artists, older and contemporary.
I will never accomplish anything close to their mastery,
but I'm learning more every day about what to appreciate in
these artists' works.
