      Thank you so much Chas it’s a challenge but loads of fun!!! L

        definitely challenging – especially when you have everything ‘there’ but then you want to get to the next level – you want to be bold but don’t want to ‘overwrite’ anything – such a balancing act – look forward to seeing the next stage

    Amazing! I love the dreaminess to it so in a way the skin/style actually works 🙂 however if you wanted to go more realistic, which I don’t feel that you do, what I tend to use for skin colour is the following:

    But instead of using ultramarine blue I tend to add sap green. Go bold with your shadows by using blue tones. All depends which style/ effect you trying to create x

      Thank you so much for writing this. I’m having a look now. It’s such a challenge, also because she has olive skin. Happy painting xx
