"Pancho Pieta" Update

9" x 12"
Oil on canvas panel

Still have a lot of work to do on this - studying up on mixing flesh tones. I really don't feel comfortable with it yet - it's a lot harder than it looks. Flesh tones have so many colors and transparencies. It has to look alive and not "plastic", I've been looking at artists like Jeremy Lipking and Michael Klein who are the masters of people painting, trying to see how they do it with developing my own style.

If you would like to see their work, here are their sites - amazingly, they are both very young, but incredibly talented.
