Yey...I had such a lovely afternoon painting 'Jackie'...I love it when a plan comes together! I'm pleased with my afternoon's work as I managed to arrive at the 'almost finished' stage as I hoped I would. I don't want to do much more to the painting, I just have to resolve the surrounding area by cooling the colour. I used my usual limited palette cadmium red, raw sienna, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, titanium white and cerulean blue. I wouldn't be without cerulean blue in my palette when painting flesh tones as it's a useful colour for cooling the mix and for creating a variety of greys.
I'll post the completed painting when it's finally finished!
