All Acrylic

Portrait just finished and delivered, started using a new technique, more classical approach to my paintings. The photo came out too blue, esp in the background which should be more pinkish, I'm still learning how to use my camera to make my portraits look more true to their actual color. Thank you for letting me share. Victoria on Okinawa<><>
