Today was all about Zachary's creasing, shading, and blushing.
Shading adds depth and definition to the baby's skin. Creasing, does a similar function but on smaller areas. By darkening the creases, the artist is creating the illusion of depth in a skin fold or wrinkle. This is especially important for separating fingers and toes. You can really see the difference between the two hands in the photo. The creased right hand (on top) looks much more lifelike than the left hand before creases were painted.
Blushing is indeed my favorite part of painting. Nice rosy toes make for very kissable feet! I did one generalized blushing today. I also went ahead and started blushing the finger nails with a glazing medium. More to come on those nails!
