Welcome back to another painting tutorial! Today I am sharing the process of painting this lovely warm skin tone on 'Nubia' via a video tutorial. Her skin is a beautiful golden honey hue so I used very little green and more ochre and burnt sienna paint than usual for the mix.
These tones are very similar to the tones I created for 'Anjel' a couple months ago, which I did a very comprehensive blog post about which colors I mixed for that portrait.
Here is that super informative post - just remember to use a bit more ochre and burnt sienna than in the Anjel photos in order to achieve Nubia's tones (pictured below).
On this palette, the skin tones variations are along the right side, with the primary (unmixed) paints on the left side and all along the bottom. Nubia's lip color is in the middle and the background blues are at the very top edge.
So have a look-sy at the tutorial and let me know what you think. Have you had success recreating my tones? Feel free to leave me a comment about how you found the vid:)
Do you love my muse as much as I do? You can find Nubia and see her fantastic and creative makeup artistry at @nubiasilvermakeup
