Portrait update, flesh.

This is a quick update on the family portrait. I have the first paint layers done in the kids, and I am planning to work in the adults faces today, then keep adding layers to all the faces.

After that, comes the painting of hair and then the clothing. My favorite part is painting the eyes, I just love that!

Hey! Don't forget that in Sept 1st we start the 29 faces challenge! Grab the button on the side bar, have your papers, canvas and journals ready... If you want to, make that first post with the tag and have it ready to go.
ANY size, material, style and medium is ok. The challenge is to try to make 29 and post them. if you are in FB, there is a group in there too, and the Linky will be ready on the 1st of September.

P.S. Keep your prayers for our friends in Louisiana. I hope the weather settles into something mild.
