    I think I overlooked this! :lol: I absolutely love your wedding work with gum. I bet your clients are thrilled to get something this unique.

    This technique just blows me away; all these layers of applied color - and yet you've nailed the skin tones. Your background detail is exquisite!

    :hail: Makes me want to have a special event just so I could hire you.

    Skintones are by far the hardest thing to produce. It is such a slippery slope between not enough of a color or too much....and of course X4 colors and the interaction between the colors.

    ...and the clients got tears in their eyes...even the guy.

    This is true 4 color process. 4 colors, cyan, magenta, yellow and black. 4 corresponding negatives. I mix my own hues with several different watercolor pigments to get what works best for me right now.

    I have tried doing some spot color too. Where a pure color is added with its own negative. Interesting. but adds a few more steps to the process.
