I am holding the camera out in front of myself, thinking and figuring in my head what the light will do, etc. Not being cynical. I used big and little bristle brushes, none of my flats or brights which give me more control, so everything is rougher. Which maybe I like. But maybe not. Also working to get more pigment into the skin, not necessarily more colorful, although this shot had some amazing pale lavender lights around the eyes. I just want to get the skin darker and it seems that the longer I work the paint, meaning more than one or two brush strokes, the lighter and more amalgamated the whole thing becomes, which I do NOT like.
