Skintones are hard....
I was experimenting with skintones today...someone said that human skin includes almost every color. Indeed when you look at your hand it's hard to figure out which colors you actually see. It's a mixture of many colors. Anyways I tried to use many different colors when I painted this image but then this guy looked like a zombie ^^; So I went over the image again.
I like the tip of his nose. I mixed a slight violet and orange in it, looks kind of natural.
The funny thing is that this guy looks exactly like my trumpet teacher.
(I used to play trumped many years ago...)
His name was Mr. Bartmann and so I named this painting. ^^
