Family Portrait Roadtrip

My prima Becky, wrapping up my tour in Fillmore

My niece Stephany

My tío Luis in Freemont.

This is my tía Zeferina from Sacramento.

My cousin Albert. Painted him while I passed by through Bakersfield on Thurs. Nov. 18. He was a great model. Went back to his pose right where he left off each time!

I told myself I'm going to stick to a monochrome palette for the next six months, but I'm trying out this duotone combination that Richard Robinson suggested to me of Burn Sienna and Ultramarine Blue plus white. I'm using Permalba white, which is a Titanium/Zinc mix. It's creamier and has less of a tinting strength than pure Titanium. I like it. It also seems less cool (blue) to me.
