In case anyone was wondering...I do paint heads....but lately just working on torsos. Thanks for all the comments on my last post. What do you think of this one:

The colour of flesh, whatever that may be, is essential to our reaction to it. A Swedish woman, an African, an Italian, an Arab, a Chinese, an English "Rose" all have to be expressed..It has to be that body, not anybody.
Sorry to be blunt. Make your paint the skin:)

Probably subconsciously making the statement that skin color doesn't matter to me. The beauty is in the form. Everyones style is different :)

I know.I just love how particular everybody is. If you draw an apple it has to be that apple not any apple. That's all I meant.

I don't mind your 'universal' treatment here with the color. Partly cause I'm exceedingly guilty myself. Create what you're compelled to create, the color of your expression, just my thought on it. Paint a 'specific' when you want if you want. This study is nice, like the brushstroke, would like a little more life in the gesture I think. This comes off a bit static. It is nice though, compositionally well framed, liked your others as well. Looking forward to more.
