Colored Pencil on Pastelbord | 10 x 8"

Yesterday’s post on skin tone palettes has made me much more conscious of my color choices as I work; I usually just grab what feels right and don’t give it a lot of consideration. I’m honestly surprised by the amount of purple I’m using on this one. I’ve also added “Rose Madder Lake” to the mix, a very hot magenta from Lyra Rembrandt.

I’m pretty happy overall with the modeling in this one, though I still need to get the shadows darker without making them cold or muddy.
