"100 Faces, No. 45"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite
sold

The thing about this one ..... I try not to dominate skin with pink tones, I think it can look chalky and cold. Usually, if I've reached this point, I add in some greens, golds - warm it up. In this case, I stopped - and truthfully, I stared at it for a good while. It touched me.

I'm am having fun following these portraits. Each conveys a different personality/character/mood. This woman looks disappointed & careworn.

I like the skin tones in this one. She looks vulnerable yet strong at the same time.
