Re: portrait commission - cute little devil
further work to the face and a very light blue wash background. struggling with the cheeks,there's quite a lot of different tones in the child's skin so i find it difficult to choose which colours, so far i've used van dyke brown, orange chrome, naples yellow, crimson alizarin, burnt sienna and yellow ochre. it's different when i look at the computer screen and then look at the printed photo version, i've gone by the photo version as the colours look a bit darker or perhaps i should stop making a fuss and do what i think is best. not a decision i take lightly.
