MOM

Now work begins on Ashley. Generally women are pinker than men, so I’ve added a little bit of Alizarin Crimson to all the skin tone mixtures. The three color zones still apply, they are just much more subtle than in men. Please remember, you may click on any of the images to see them larger.

With the light coming from the upper left, her forehead and bridge of the nose are highlighted. Darkening the shadow side of the nose gives it form. 

Ashley’s arm is more tan, so I use some of the warmer mixes from Pastor Chris’ face here.

Her purple shirt is made from combinations of Dioxazine Purple + Magenta + White.

A couple of colors not usually found on my palette, Burnt Umber and Ivory Black, are used for Ashley’s long, dark hair.

We couldn’t figure out Emma’s blanket in the original picture so Pastor Chris was kind enough to supply me with one of Ashley’s favorites. I took a couple of photos so he could immediately return it home to Emma’s room. We didn’t want the baby’s cover to be gone long enough for Mom to discover it was missing! I bring in some of the purples from the shirt for the knitted bands. The pinker bands are Alizarin Crimson + White.

Emma’s cap is blocked in with a soft green made of Pthalo Blue + Lemon Yellow + White.

I will also have to come back and make some final adjustments on Ashley. The blanket needs some additional work too. Children are NEXT!!!! Hope you’ll come follow along. With Colorful Smiles and HUGS,
