Portrait/Figure Painting Class Week 6

So last week I left off at with an oil sketch in brown of the next pose in class. Today we continued on, and I added color to it. The color combinations of the skintones may look strange, but trust me I’m on the right track. haha…This technique is so new to me, but with this painting I think that I’m starting to grasp it better. Already I can see how my handling of the paint, and of color, is getting fine-tuned! Excited to see how this painting is going to turn out! Here are some photos showing the progression:

This was where I started today.

Added a Cadmium Red Light+White mixture for the skin in light.

Filled the skin in shadow with a Dioxzinine Purple+white mixture, then began adding other colors I saw in the skintone to show the planes in the form. (or tried to do that at least! haha)

This is where I ended class today. Deepened the colors and continued trying to show the turns and planes in the form. Hopefully I can keep it up for next week!
