Colors and tonal values of flesh colors. The image was also processed in whatsitcolors to get the main complementary color. See next.

The various tones were obtained by mixing and blending the colors, named as they appear on the screen. Skin tones vary so much, from person to person, and art image to art image. There are several possibilities for mixing diferent colors to achieve the varying tones nuances and shadows of flesh colors. I use one of these possibilities here. Please comment and critique this work and make suggestions. Thank you for your attention.:)

Another great painting and another great insight into color. It is really amazing how much fleshtones pick up the reflections of other warm and cool colors! Thanks for giving us the study notes to go along with this.

Al, Alexandra, Wenkat, AT and Coops, thanks for the comments:). I'm enjoying studying the colors and how can I mix the colors from the top of my head.
