Hi everyone! I'll be doing a lot of portraits for a while so sorry if I'm boring you. I started off by toning my canvas with thinned down (water) Raw Sienna. I found it interfered with the way I saw the colors and didn't really like it. In the pic the skin tones are a little more red then in real life. 8X10 on canvas. Credit for the reference photo Steve Evans.

You've really got a knack for expressions.
Keep 'em coming! It's not boring at all.

You always do such a good job of capturing expression through their mouth and eyes. Nice work.

Judy
