Hey Mixed Media Society Member!
I hope you've been having a blast with Lucy's recent lesson on how to mix your own skin tones to create a stunning Scottish Lass, with freckles, no less!!
I'm LOVING seeing so many of these floating around in the Facebook group. They're just gorgeous!!
So tell me, what do YOU think about the whole process of mixing your own skin tones vs. using colors straight outta the palette?

There's no wrong answer... it's just personal preference. Make sure you scroll down and leave me a note in the comments. I'm just SO curious!!
Anyhooooo... let's get on to TODAY's lesson, shall we?
Today, we're back to the Complexions set by Prima. I HOPE you love this set as much as me, and if you have something you like better- that's awesome, please use it!!
As I mentioned, we're back to the Prima Complexions watercolor set for this project, if you have it. And by all means, if you LOVED mixing your own skin tones with Lucy - PLEASE do that again in this lesson if you're feeling called to do so.

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
