More Portraits

These paintings were all done with four colors; transparent red oxide, cadmium red, titanium white and ivory black or payne grey.

I had tried to work only with red oxide, white and black. But I had a hard time with this strictly tonal panel so I started using cad red. It brought out more of the skin tones.
