    Today I start with a new picture.

    It is Raphael, the grandson of my cousin. My cousin I recently sprayed and he liked it very much. That is why I received the commission for this portrait. Only difficulty .... it should be painted in color.

    When it comes to color I'm pretty unsure. That is why I used today the time to find the colors and the way I can achieve that.

    For this I have made a small paint experiment and used as a base shower "skin tone". I sprayed several gradients and produced different intensities. In addition, I have sprayed these gradients with some transparent tones. I used Prussian blue, carmine red, yellow, phalogreen and brazil brown.

    I learned again today how fast you can be wrong with colors!
    For now I now know what tones I must put together to get the desired color.

    I will keep you up to date!

    Always isolate the target colour, not doing this fatal. Our eyes cannot make accurate decisions with lots of colour around! It's blown my mind how I think a colour looks then finding out in isolation it's completely different!!

    Colors are not what we think they are. That's the truth.

    After the intensiv color matching session I start with the background. I cut a paper stencil and cover the stencil with Frisket befor.[​IMG]

    This painting needs a lot of my patience and concentration. The eyes of this little boy are so clear and deep and I hope I can do it right.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Awesome as usual! You've set the bar high with your previous work and I'm sure this will look just as good.

    Now it's getting serious! [​IMG]

    Slowly I build up the first layer of skin tone. [​IMG]
    It's a semi transparent color.

    Current situation. I could still save the picture. I had accidentally seized Prussian Blue instead of Sephia and the dark areas looked horrible.
    Then I covered everything more or less with opaque white and rebuilt all colors.
    Now I have a better feeling the whole good finish.
