I’m working on the other leg and pushing the color a bit.

In the photo the skin is much too uniform so I’m trying to see more colors in the photos and the little hints of red, green and blue I’m trying to push as much as possible without it looking too strange. I do plan on going over the entire painting again with a last glaze layer so some of this color will tone down.

  1. I think the reds are completely natural. It’s the greens and blues which throw me off sometimes, but then I take a good hard look at my hands, or legs, and I’m reminded that we are not one toned species.
