I'm trying to finish up as many of the mug shots of the Hilton Head Gang as I can - as we have a special surprise we're putting together. Now, this was Dawn, and she was about the sweetest person there - but when it was her turn to pose for her mugshot she sure got an authentic 'criminal' look about her, don't you think?
I tried using (for the most part, I needed to add some umber & ultramarine for the shadow areas) a skin 'cocktail' from David Shevlino - whose work I love. He uses Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Orange and White. I'd never used that mix but it worked for the most part. Now that I'm looking I see I did add a bit of Cad Red Light to her cheek area.
I've been absent for a few days, because my husband and I have spent a few days on Cape Cod - more anniversary celebration! We never have real 'work free' days for either one of us, but I tried to limit his phone calls by ducking into a store every time he got one, and had stuff waiting at the register when he came to find me ;).... Other than that it was galleries, galleries, galleries, although, the 'season' hasn't started yet on the Cape, so they weren't all open yet. VERY inspirational though,
