I am trying to get better at painting skin. So I did a color-study of a work of art, then tried to formulate my findings into a simple spherical-shape and then lastly did my own version of the work of art from memory. Turns out I go darker and more saturated in my own work. Also redder in the shadows. So I have to look out for that in future attempts.
I didn't go for correct proportions, since the goal was to learn about colors.
I elongated her face, because I find it enhanced her seemingly bored expression.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
