Lesson Discussion

  1. Could you give a suggestion for the basic skintone palate for a caucasian, blue eyed child. I am trying to do a portaite of my grandson on vellum bristol paper. This is my second attempt. I know over burnishing and smooth bristol paper were my mistakes on the first attempt.

    • Hi Nancy,

      It will still be a combination of red, yellow, brown, and white. For a caucasian tone, more white will be used. You may try a combination of Cream, White, and Peach. Some areas mays see a bit more red used. If you want to send me the pic (, I’ll be glad to mix a match for you.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions. I was leaning toward light peach for the base and using sienna brown for values on eye features and nose areas. Suggestions for under chin values. Are purples or blues appropriate?
