  1. I am not sure when he talked about color. He didn’t explain how to make the 3 values. Could you help me out with that. Several times he said about the flesh tones, however, I don’t know how to mix them to get that.
    Thank you

    • Hi Silvia,

      There are a variety of ways to mix skin tones. I suggest using a mixture of a red, yellow, brown, and white. You can experiment with the actual pigments to find a combination that works for your subject. Perhaps try a Cadmium Red for warmer tones or an Alizarin Crimson for cooler tones, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, and Titanium White. Tones can be dulled (for shadows) with a little Ultramarine Blue.

  2. Hi Matt, This course is very helpful for me as I am more interested in oils. I would like to see more tutorials on oil portraits and figures with all details like different flesh tones male portrait, female portrait, child portrait. Thanks.
