    Thank you very much for your compliments guys, Edward, mark, Carl B, Daniel, Eduardo, Tommi, Mike, Hendryk, Martin, Chris, dave, Ronald, Stephen, Alessandro, David, Grant, Marcel!

    I've never had such a compliments, thank you very much, Daniel.

    Thanks Tommi such a nice praise. I'm trying to find a new sweet spot on painting face to beyond the previous ones this time.

    LOL! yes you are right I'm hooked on "painting small faces seriously". (term used by my wife when she describes my hobby).

    Sure. here's my Jo Sonja palette.
    my-pallet-2011-11-20-josonja.jpg

    My palette is strongly inspired by Dimitrios and Sang-Eon Lee's palette. I admit I'm a big fan of Dimitrios' skintone and Lee's shadows.

    When I make basetone I follow Dimitrios's instruction: "Burnt sienna, Raw sienna, Naples yellow hue", plus I add a small amount of "Skintone base" to lighten up the brightness. I also add "Brown Madder, Hookers green" for shadows and tanning.

    Strange and interesting fact is that I use the same paints as painters I admire, but the result is always "goddamn my skintone!" :)

    and...basecoat palette, as a reference.

    Thanks Grant as shown above, it's all acrylics. I'm always trying to make oil-like richness with acrylics.
