I began this portrait to work on skin tones using a different color combo; yellow ocher, burnt sienna, and raw umber. The bright reds are a combo of Naphthol Red Light and Red Oxide. My inspiration image came from Pinterest, although the model has red hair on the original photo. Kara Strachan Bullock of “Let’s Face It” fame posted this to her page to advertise the year-long portrait class “Let’s Face It”, which was a real blessing and encouragement! My second year of Kara’s course and it has been great; I feel I have learned a lot. Some of the year-long classes have some offerings that don’t resonate, but I am glad to say that almost all of Kara’s weekly offerings and assortment of teachers has been wonderful!
