Paint I am using
Createx offer lots of different types of paint but the ones I currently like using are the illustration colours. This is the one colour (burnt umber) I will use for roughly 98% of this #female #portrait painting I am currently working on. As you can see by the bar at the bottom it shows a scale from dark values to light. By simply adding small amounts of water or reducer to the paint it will get lighter. The more you add to thin out the paint the lighter it gets. So when painting those really light areas in the cheeks and forehead I will really thin out the paint. The remaining 2% I will use just #createx illustration black to help darken the hair, shadows and the pupils of the eyes.
