paola's hands

Watercolor on Arches CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

another try at paola's long fingers in carbon pencil from a squared photo. still have not got them.

background is cerulean blue RS mixed with pyrrole orange. the flesh colors are pure tints of the secondary palette paints, plus green gold, applied as distinct sheets of color. this gave a pellucid, iridescent range of flesh tones that i really like.
