Re: Self-Portrait -- Acrylic Painting

The way you make your skin is just remarkable! What types (shapes) of brushes do you use to get that detail?

I use small to medium flat brushes, the ones with the squared tips. Just follow the contours of the face. To achieve depth I just do MANY even layers and basically build layers of skin, paying close attention to pours, natural skin texture and highlights. :-)

Patience is key!

THANKS!

Paul
