Painting - Oil / Panel
A somewhat erotic study I did as practice for fleshtone mixes. Flesh tones are always a subjective shade to me, as humans we instinctively tend to be acutely aware of our species visual ambience. Much emotional baggage can be triggered by simply using warm shades or cool skin shades in a figure or portrait painting, Colour has always been an indicator of the health and well being of an individual, it also has a bearing on age perception, pinks are usually associated with younger people while painting older subjects relies more ochers and umbers. Of course lighting is the other important element that can define mood. I make an effort to regularly paint figures as it tends to hone the skills of perception and technical competence.
