This is a portrait from a magazine. I interpreted the colours loosely. As always your helpful comments are appreciated.

I would be interested to know your formula for the facial color tones, shadows? Very nice. Can you give her some eyelashes?

Hello JT. The flesh colours are simply cad. red, cad. Yellow with a fleck of French Ultramarine to cool the down. Shadows are purple, mixed with Aliz. Crimson and Cerulean blue, if I remember correctly. I might have used a little Mars Black in the deep shadows. I often use sap green + black for shadows. I also, on impulse, used a cerulean blue mix for light shades round the eyes. White + lemon in highlights. Aliz. Crimson + sap green in cheeks.

Good capture of the expression and nice skin tones.
