Red Slip - original oil pastel figurative painting


I got a lot of green in her skin - more of a yellow-green.  As much as I love green, I may have overdone it.  Anyway, decided not to change it.  This painting is 7 x 5" on Pastelbord.  Just a fun little thing.
As promised awhile back, I am going through stuff and found one container of the old Holbein portrait set - there were five colors in each little plastic holder.  The one I found today was the five values of Hansa yellow (I think).  Is 5A Hansa yellow in Holbein - I think it is.  That's not surprising, but there were other containers that had a variety of colors that were great for portraits, but that I wouldn't necessarily associate with portraits.  I'm determined to find them and will share as soon as I do.  Also, I found a place that SAYS it has Holbein oil pastel portrait sets.  I'm going to give them a call and will let you know the results.  Thanks for stopping by!
