The warm skin tone in contrast to the cool background is my favorite part of this sketch. The background color I put on about three weeks ago with Gamblin Fast Matte colors. It was a blend of burnt sienna, dioxazine purple, indian yellow, cad red light and ultramarine blue with a little quick dry white. They have a matte finish and dry fast so they are good to put over an oil primed linen.
Thank you for viewing my art.
