  • How to use photographic references when you can’t paint directly from life

A Word from the Author
Painting beautiful skin tones has more to do with understanding color and the way it is affected by light than any other factor. The principles presented here apply to any medium and do not rely on a particular style or technique.” –Chris Saper
