Beautiful how you paint the real color in skin.

wow! this is fabulous and a great demo. its a lot like watercolours the adding layers with each glaze. and it’s good to know that oil can be added in at the very end too. i’m planning to try this out as two separate experiments. thank you very very much.

Thanks, this was fun for me. I’ve never done a demo like this before. It’s how I paint, but I’ve never took note of the process.

Thanks for sharing the process. Now that I’m working more in oils it’s great to see this idea of using acrylics for getting started. It makes perfect sense and the bright colored underpainting adds vibrancy to the final painting. I like the last one best myself, but I see why you’d like the second to last. I’ve been doing one portrait over and over trying to get it…maybe tomorrow!
