Skin tone palette handmade watercolor paint set by Elena at JournalArtPages.com

I know we want to mix our own skin tone. But, honestly, sometimes, I REALLY prefer to use something that will get me started, especially when I want to stay consistent with the colour in my illustrations.

SKIN TONE PALETTE (MINI)




I came up with this mini palette of 6 colours that I use the most, when painting my characters. 

The colours are:

TITAN BUFF
FLESH
GOLDEN YELLOW
SUNSHINE YELLOW
ROSEBERRY
SIENNA

Handmade watercolours in a travel mini tin. All of these paints are handmade with artist pigment. 

6 half pans. 


LARGE SKIN TONE PALETTE


And, of course, if you do like to mix an absolute huge variety of skin tones, we can go a bit back to the basics and (gosh forbid we forget how to mix), I made an extended version of this palette. I find that this combinations of pigments will give you A LOT OF CHOICES, lol.

TITAN BUFF
FLESH
GOLDEN YELLOW
LIGHT YELLOW
PINK
SIENNA
ALIZARIN RED
WARM BLUE
UMBER BROWN



Well, if you had a chance to try these colors and used them for your SKIN TONE palette, I would love to hear from you.

Blue Angel gouache painting whimsical illustration

whimsical illustration in gouache

I love to use opaque watercolors and gouache, especially when I paint my whimsical characters with layering colors. It is so much fun, because gouache creates such wonderful smooth finish and the painting is so velvety to the touch. It is nice to work with good quality paints as well.
