I Usually mix burnt umber and burnt sienna for medium brown skin but here I added a little yellow ochre to get a little variation. I should do more skin colour swatches so I can get more comfortable painting skin.
As always the hair was loads of fun and I got more texture in there than I’ve managed in the past so that makes me happy.
Also because of the collar being white, I had to make a background (this was before the line art). This is rather simple but I like it. Sometimes I forget it doesn’t have to be highly detailed or special to work…
