The Entourage: Black and White

I am so happy that this week has finally arrived.  Last week I was sick and I’m finally feeling better.  AND, Harmony and I have our birthday on Wednesday.  She’s turning 20, and I’m turning 24.

Here is the black and white layer of the painting.  When it comes to painting people a black and white layer is good for the skin tones.  It adds dimension when it shows through.  It is also a sort of road map so that I know where certain colors go.

I think I’m a little rusty in the portrait department, but don’t worry.  Asher’s face will get better!  I promise!
