This is so wonderfully done!!!
Upon first look (in the thumb view), I thought someone had used a picture of my youngest daughter as a reference...but in full view, I'm completely wrong...
You've really done well :) The skin tones are near perfect, and I just love the lock of hair falling in her face.
:heart:

Thank you, if your daughter even resembles this little girl she must be a cutie! I loved painting this girl, those eyes and her hair where a treat.

The eyes and hair are what caught me...as my daughters eyes and hair are so very similar :)

Wonderful work! it feel so real and in some way soo freshand not overworked. amazing :D
which colours did you use for the skin?
AnnaGilhespy's avatar
There are hints of all the following colours in her skin:
Titanium white
Lemon yellow
Cadmium yellow deep
Flesh tint
Scarlet lake
Burnt sienna
Burnt umber
Paynes grey
Terre verte

Skin is so translucent that this many colours are needed to make it look realistic. a basic mix of titanium white, burnt sienna, cadmium yellow deep and a tiny bit of paynes grey makes a good skin tone to start with, then I add hints of the others to create a realistic skin tone. The terre verte (green) was added because she has green light reflected from the foreground on her face and arms.

Beautiful Ana. I like the way you crop the picture.
And...I love those bright eyes. So real.

Yeah her eyes are what drew me to that photo in the first place. Thank you for the comment. Have a happy New Year! [link]
