A study in skin tone. I've recently become interested in capturing the blues, greens, pinks and yellows in skin tone, particularly how the color varies from one part of the body to the next.
I struggled with photographing this work. The colors look a little grey on the photo. Have a look at the zoomed-in image of the shoulder for a reasonably accurate representation of the colors in the painting.
