Time to Paint!

The first thing I do before I start to paint is to sort out all the colours that I will need.  I don't like to use a lot of colours.  Any colours that I need can be made up from the ones I have selected.

For flesh tones I always use Scarlet Lake, Permanent Rose, Cadmium Lemon, Pthalo Green and Ultramarine Blue.  I added a few more colours for the kids' clothes and all these colours will be incorporated into the background as well.

Starting with the eyes, I try to cover the whole face with different tones and hues in a thin coat of paint.  In this way I can experiment with colour and find the right tones in the right areas before seriously painting the face.
