I started with oil today and the colors are going to start out very saturated.

It’s intentional that I’m starting this way, I’m pushing the chroma of the colors on the beginning layers so that I can use some semi glazed layers on subsequent sessions to tone it down some. I hope to have most of the high chroma colors show through the later layers and give the skin a transparent quality.
