Female Profile "Courtney", 6x8" oil portrait

Still working with a few head studies to practice skin tones, as well as features.  On this one, I tried very hard to capture a likeness as well as the proper skin tones.

$80 + 10

She has that beautiful ivory skin, full of blues, lavenders and peaches.

It took several tries to capture her cute upturned nose just right.

I have not done portraits for many years and find that I am enjoying the challenge this week.  It's always good to push yourself now and then.

Un portrait rempli de délicatesse... J'aime beaucoup les multitudes touches de couleurs de la peau. Une belle oeuvre.
Gros bisous

I am impressed with the fresh quality you have managed to keep. Skin colors are great. Love the crop.
