Rachel Revisited

One of the neat things about acrylic paints is that they can be painted over. After viewing the painting of Rachel - see two blogs ago- I decided that it had to be warmed up. So I did some glazing with this result. The model has a cool skin tone and there was no "real" background- just more artists. So I had just used a complimentary colour. However, it was a cool complementary - and the later decision was to warm that up as well as warm the skin tones just a bit. I'm not sure the difference shows in a photo - but it does when you see the actual painting.
