Chrysanthemum In Her Hair....

A portrait study... Learning new skin tone mixes and 
Just playing with oil paint.
I have not really used black in my skin tones, this portrait has 
Been paints with mixes include ding black...
I really like the results. 
It gives a more realistic muted skin tone, that is still
Fresh and alive. 
My skin tone colours are;
Light skin tone: Cad Red, Cad Yellow, titanium white, a little black.
Mid tone: Cad Red , Raw Sienna, titanium white, black.
Darks skin tones: Cad Red, Raw sienna, black.
I also used Ultramarine Blue, Burnt umber and sap green to give variations. 


Painted on oil paper.
