I can't change er because already been listed on ebay but I was wondering about flesh tones.

My scanner is scanning orangey so this isn't a good idea of the color. I started with a peach underpainting and built up from there. How would I go about getting a paler flesh tone and adding some blues and yellows?

Any help is appreciated,

Hi Mia, your painting didn't show up so you might want to try again. Click the "Quick Links" and scroll down to "upload image".

Here is a link to a Classroom done on Protraiture by Nitsa. It has some suggestions for skin tones. Starting at post #33 you will see several mentions of colors used for skin tones. Hope this helps!

Wow!! That tutorial is excellent! I've bookmarked it. I'm already doing some of the things she mentions but need to add several different colors to my pallette. The idea of doing a diox purp underpainting is particularly interesting to me.

Thanks so much!!
