Thinking About Skin Tone...

Hello again,

I absolutely love that as a part of the Spectrum Noir Education Team, once a month we are asked to reflect on our own practice and take a look at past tutorials.

So, in my ongoing quest to find different skin tones with my Spectrum Noir markers I found a tutorial on 'Undertone Skin Colouring' and found the perfect stamp in my stash to follow it...

You can find the tutorial HERE if you'd like to try it for yourself :D

I really really like the green's as the undertone, wasn't sure at first but it looks so natural with her blonde hair and I teamed her dress on theme too so the skin reflections would be right :D

Here's the stuff I used:
Style: I just love using the Split or Pop Up Easel at the moment
Spectrum Noir Markers:
Skin: FS1, EB1, EB2, DG1 and blender
Hair: GB10, 6, 4
Clothes: CG1, 2, DG2, 4, TN7, 5, 4, 3, IG5, 3, 2
