Acrylic Painting: 3rd Complete Painting, a Study in skintones

Finished the acrylic paint study of skin tone. It was done over a sketch of my daughter’s I transfered, unchanged, onto canvas paper. Dry brushed a limited palette to create the figure, then added some touches.

Wait a minute . . . couldn’t leave it alone. I added a milky way effect and a star to give it more of a recognizable starfield effect.

Oap! Had to mess with it again, stars in a starfield and all. Had fun with some more (Liquitex Soft Body Acrylics) interference paints in blue and violet.

Some other close ups.
