Colour and Tone in Portraiture

If you look closely at the skin, there can be many different tones and colours which can be very confusing.  I concentrate on the tones first - shadow and highlights - before I worry too much about the colour.  I decided initially that my highlights would be a warm light, so I have made the light on the left of their faces a lovely orange glow.  The shadows on their right are a pink/purple with a slightly lighter glow coming from the right side of the face.
