Portrait Model with Red Hair

8" x 6" Oil on Panel
This week's post shows the painting I made at last Thursday's portrait session. I arrived late, but so did the model so I didn't really lose any time. There was even a good spot for me to set up my paintbox and easel. 

Colors used were slightly different this time. I mistook a tube of naples yellow for a different yellow and accidentally squeezed some onto my palette before realizing the mistake. Then I thought "Why not try it?" and found it to be a very good color to use in light skin tones. Other colors used were cadmium yellow lemon, cadmium red purple, and ivory black.
