MY COMMENTS:
A cross post from the Acrylics Forum

I'm having a heck of a time creating sepia tones with this one, I've gone from grays (as seen in the first pic)


to browns (as seen in the second pic)

I think the hair is coming along ok...



MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any suggestions how to create a variety of sepia tones? I have burnt umber, cadmimum yellow medium, mars black, titanium white, unbleached titanium, and some various reds...

It seems that you have all of the colors that would produce your sepia tones. A color I might add would be yellow ochre. This initial start is looking so very interesting....can't quite recognize the face as yet but I'm thinking of a Boston father circa 1865.

Well done and please post updates?

Thanks!
