Another quick portrait from last week, this time of new model, Chanon. I used a neutral grey ground again, instead of my usual warm tint, and I’m still really liking it. I’m not sure it makes the finished product look any different (aside from the areas I left sloppy), but it makes the process a lot different; painting flesh tones that contrast with the background vs. warms on top of warms.  more soon!
