Child Portrait in Progress
Child portraits are always challenging because their faces lack the defining landmarks, shadows, wrinkles, etc. of adult faces. Just all plump and dewy. It's also tempting to really overemphasize the pinkness. I usually temper it with a nice pale green. I think that gives a good light-skinned child's skin tone. This cheek is still a little bit too pink, but I'm going to let it dry a while before I go back in.
