Description

As soon as the paint was dry, I added layers of colour in a process of glazing. I knew it was a risky job because I couldn't predict the final result.
And that's when disaster striked! After adding gentle shades of orange and pink in order to create a soft skintone, I immediatly noticed that the underlying grey-tones were fatal.
No matter how i tried, I had to face the fact that my little daughter's portrait looked like a three day old corpse!
No worries, exept for the fact that I had to repaint the whole skintone. It worked out allright in the end, but the vintage effect that I was aming for, went lost in the whole process of repainting. Still, a nice result, even if not spectacular. I hope you will enjoy!
