Building on the author's popular first book, "Painting Beautiful Skin Tones with Color & Light", this title moves readers forward in the exploration of painting beautiful skin tones. Step-by-step it expands on the original demonstrations in the first book to include: Native American, Mediterranean, Asian, Caucasian brunette and Caucasian redhead, as well as updated African American and Latino subjects. Readers will enjoy two demonstrations for each of the seven diverse subjects - one from life and one from photograph. Though oil painting is the basis of the book's demonstrations, Chris Saper's techniques are not medium specific and can apply to artists interested in all forms of portraiture.
