Hello! On tonight’s post, I’m continuing with Agnès painting and blushing. Painting dark skin tones can be an uneasy task, especially with the blushing part. To resolve this problem, I had to equip myself with tons pictures of beautiful and various women of color. In order to offer an authentic and respectful work and I needed to learn how to make beautiful blushing for the shadow aspect and believe me, that didn’t come over night! It came with a lot of trials and errors! One of them was to create the exact color blushing for the doll… It was a nice try, but once acrylic paints dries, it gets darker and that is why now, I ALWAYS make sure to make a few tests first! Another thing that I have learned over the years, is to always use a color wheel. The color wheel helps me to understand the relationship between colors, especially when it makes an equilateral triangle to find the two other colors. You see, each color has 3 colors between them to form a triangle with different tints (white), shades (gray) and shadows (black). Anyways, regardless of some painting imperfections, this doll was a bless to paint!
