Ok, so I am starting to try some portrait work. This is the second or third attempt at my sister. The first one is so wonky looking that it's not getting posted. I have been using different poses to work from each time and I wonder if working on the same one each time might be more productive? After I did this study I started looking up some skin tone mixes and remembered that I am missing the cooler tones in the shadows. It's funny how obvious that seems when I see the painting on the computer screen.
