Painting melanin rich skin actually utilizes much of the same paint as any other skin tone, it's all in the quantities used. Today I'm going to share how to create a lovely vibrant variety of hues that I'm using in my next painting.
Here’s my palette all laid out. You definitely don’t have to match it exactly, but at least it gives you an idea of how to get started. In the video I talk more about the concepts of creating these tines rather that the actual paint mix ratios so you will be able to create these tones with whatever you have as well.
