3086: Super Intense Colors

I want to see if I can make the skin look as if it was glowing. Fire from within.

I started comparing colors for the Rajiv to painting then after mixing about five or six colors that were pretty close from the shadow areas I realized that I couldn’t hit the highest values on his skin on his shoulder.

Then I realized that I didn’t wipe balance the painting well. To be very specific I had a white balancing filter over the image but I had preserved luminosity checked and that threw everything off. So I basically have to start again and throw away all the colors that I just mixed.

I have an idea of drawing a muscle circle on the bottom of my palate I’m really lightly so I know where every two color I have is placed on my palette.
