5th Lesson - Marylyn Mayo

With my 3 basic colours made up, I am starting from around the eyes again.  You will notice as you move around the face, that there are slight variations in skin tone.  I am not concentrating on the one area, as I don't want the colours to vary too much.  So, as I move out from the eyes I just adjust the colour slightly by making the mix a bit pinker, or purple as the need arises.  Then with this new colour I can pick out areas of the face with similar colour and paint that in before moving on.  Using this method, you can maintain continuity of colour and tone and speed up the painting process.
