Getting slowly better at painting while simultaneously hitting the limits of my limited palette, great exercise. My skin is a bit lighter than shown so I got those colors wrong, but I did learn a lot more about face anatomy.

I left my test strokes to showcase how much mixing of different colors I did and tested. Slowly as I’ve done more gouache paintings, I’ve taken less time to mix the colors I wanted because I’m learning how to get to the exact colors I wanted.
