Day 19 - Ruddy

Ruddy, Acrylic on Gessoed Mat Board, 10"x7"

Day 19 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

I used an old photo of my Dad for this one. I am starting to get some likeness, although I don't have it nailed yet. Dad has very ruddy skin which I tried to capture here. I found the ruddiness very hard to match color-wise - there's a lot of red, but it isn't all that dark, and there are some hints of yellow and blue in there.
