Meanwhile, I have created a couple of portraits using colored pencil as practice so I could experiment with color schemes without using the rest of my white paint. I also wanted to feel better about myself after the epic paint fail. My vision for the girl in the painting was a surreal snow white skin tone, very similar to albino skin. I was using photos of albino models as references for the skin colors, but I am having difficulty translating this to paint. I feel like I did better with colored pencil.
