We finally completed all of Alaina's "under the skin" painting. Now it's time to add some skin!
For African-American babies, I rarely use the premixed colors (e.g., Flesh 02, Flesh 03, etc...). I instead prefer a custom blend of Raw Sienna and Burnt Umber and Blue. This gives me much more control over the baby's complexion - especially if the baby has gold undertones. (Check out today's Pro Tip for more on Premixed Flesh Tones.)
Since Alaina is light-complexioned like her daddy, I only needed two layers to capture her skin tone. Now it's time to do some shading!
