Max and Tilly: Stage 2

Stage 2: Painting the face. I started with Max's face. For the skin color I mixed Yellow Ochre and Transparent Earth Red, lightened with Titanium White. And then for the pink tones I mixed in Cadmium Red.
I painted in blocks of color looking for the general shapes of color and value, blending as I went.
Then it was time to go over the entire face and hair with completion in mind, checking edges and colors, blending here and there - and then finally stopping before I ruined it. 

Painting always entertains and amazes me.
