MY COMMENTS:
I'm obviously a beginner. This was a practice piece. I know there is more wrong than right. I treated his face differently as I was figuring out what to do with my paints, learning about mixing color, values, temp. etc.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Anything you could tell me or offer to help me improve would be welcomed/appreciated. Any hints on creating different skin tones would be helpful. Do people create a base color and then glaze over in different colors?

This is a strong bold painting. You have wonderful shapes and contrast. You catch the light very well.

I could give you flesh tones in oils but acrylics stump me so we'll wait for a someone more experienced in the medium.

So far, I like this. You might want to study facial porportions a little more if you are looking for a more realistic face.

Keep posting you are doing great!

you can develop the right color and composition by mixing - and going over and over, incrementally bringing it to a wholeness that you like.
