My wife commissioned a piece of her breastfeeding. Breastfeeding should be celebrated!

hi ^^ I use watercolors too

one thing I feel I could recommend is your skin shading. it looks like you used black or ultramarine ? :o

I always use blue-ish magenta (much like the BG color you have) with some cadmium yellow. it creates a dark and intense flesh color (I also mainly use this one color to shade via gradients when it comes to skin ;) )

so my advice would be to perhaps experiment with some mixtures of these two colors ^^
(I know, they'll look red in the pallette, but spread it on paper and you see the actualy color range ^^)

Thanks! I used prussian blue, but I think it was mixed with some black ink from a previous mix, because I had used it before and it looked better. I'll keep better watch of that.

Thanks for the tip on skin color mix, will give it a shot.
