Skin Glaze and Final Touches
Today I have done the final skin glaze on these two lovelies! I start by making a glaze from yellow ochre, vermilion, and titanium white mixed with a medium made up of 60% linseed oil and 40% mineral spirits. Then I add more red into the cheeks, nose,etc, then white for highlights. I go back in with a very fine brush and do the lines in the eyes, brows, nostrils, and lips again. Steve and Nicole do not look exactly as they do in real life, but it’s pretty close.
