Life Drawing – xiv

A drawing of Helen, I decided to practice my life drawing while initially wanting to practice painting skin tones.

In my first piece of this project I was painting skin tones with only three colours:
– a base tone
– a highlight
– a shadow.

However, I have found using four is more effective. Using two shadows.
However, depending on the skin tone of the person, a fifth tone may be needed for highlighting, which I had done in this particular case.
