That was a long walk up to get this painting, well worth it. :)

Absolutely! You've captured it beautifully. I adore jagged mountainous scenery, it's the reason I want to visit NZ.

On another note, would it be possible to bend your ear about painting figures, mainly painting skin?

Sure.. ask away, I'm about to go out and will be really busy but I will get around to answering.

No problem, just when you get a moment, thank you. I've never painted skin tones, and I'm trying to create a portfolio for college, and it should include a portrait or figure painting, and I'm not sure how to get realistic skin tones. Any pointers you could give would be hugely appreciated. I have a few weeks, so no need to respond right away. Thank you very much. H x

Pointers.. hmm. Start by painting on a light blue background, this colour could come in handy with spots you miss when painting. Don't be shy to let the light blue sneak out every now and then in the painting.

Use the three primary colours and not a pre-mixed skin tone.

Play with the paints on the pallette until you come up with several light and dark shades of skin tone. Dark Blue is great for shading, white for highlights.

Pink is pink.. but with a little yellow it becomes more fleshy.

Let the brush strokes show... mistakes in painting are like gold.. they teach you where you went wrong for next time.

Brilliant Karl! Thank you so much. I will give this a try and see how I get on. Trial and error as you say :D
