Asia



This is my little niece Asia, she came over and happily posed for some shots in the front yard. She's a natural in front of the camera and super cute!
I've been discovering, I really like to paint people and their faces since it's so interesting to see a person's face come to life in the process and so satisfying when it's finished.

  4. Sheila, you keep stunning me! What colors did you use for the skin tone? I'm not sure I know the right ones to try.

  6. Skin tones I used where, Gamboge, P.Rose/Aliz Red, and Colbalt, and Burnt umber or B. Sienna to warm them up.
