I was looking into one of my many half-done journals and found this girl. She was done in colored pencils first as you can see from the second image but I decided to put some acrylic flesh tone over her face. Suzi Blu uses "Santa's Flesh" by Delta Creamcoat for her Petit Dolls class. I only know this because she mentioned that in her other class I was taking at the time. She also uses Titan Buff. Both are great for mixing flesh tones. I have no idea how she really uses the Santa's Flesh but I have discovered that it is semi-opaque so therefore it makes a wonderful glaze over colored pencils. I like it! By the way, Suzi's class was great and I highly recommend it. The one I took was "The Goddess and the Poet"--of which I am neither! I am thinking about going back and doing the Petit Dolls. I am the perpetual student I guess. Learning and growing is a good thing, this Martha says!
Oh, and who I meant was Lisa Marie Presley when she was younger. Maybe there is something in the eyes that reminded me of her...maybe. Remember, she had her father's eyes.
