Painting Skin Tones

OK, I've got a (partially finished) painting to show everyone!
In reading my newest Cloth, Paper & Scissors magazine, I saw an article by Pam Carriker.
I loved the painting of the girl in her article and was itching to try out the colors for skin tones that she used. I quickly sketched out a long neck (girl, that is) and hurriedly painted in the face. I've gotta admit that I may like the colors that I've used her better than any I've used.
And I've tried a lot here lately.

What do you all think?

ouuuu...yes...love her! I haven't broken into my mag yet because I am saving it for the hours waiting on the baby---on Monday!!! They're inducing!

Can't wait to see what colors Pam uses for the faces! You did a great job. Any word from DJ?

i LOVE the look- it's very soft, and the face itself is compelling.
