I'm just working on my second acrylic portrait, and I seem to have a lilac lip thing going on. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif
What colours should I mix together for a pale pinky orangey male lips colour?

Thanx!

Don't know what you're using for skin. I (usually) use yellow ochre and cad red light basics and modify as needed (green, blue, etc). On a male I (usually) add some raw sienna. If this is also your pallette, just add a little more cad red light for lips.

Hope this helps. Happy painting.

One more question! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

What colour should I use to shape teeth? Obviously they can't be left bright white all over. I just looked closely at a couple of magazine pictures, and I see some grey and some yellow! But I don't think the yellow, especially, will look too good in paint?!!

Anyone got any close ups of paintings of teeth??
