Matisse Portrait Set
This set includes the colours traditionally used by painters. Some of these colours have been enhanced purely for portrait painting. For example, the often used Raw Sienna has been superseded by a purpose developed Skin Tone Mid which will allow further mixing and development of colours than would be possible with a traditional Raw Sienna. Yellow Oxide and Matisse Red Light in the set allows you to bring vibrancy to the brightest areas of colour within the face, for the ears, cheeks, nose and lips. Together with the inclusion of the brilliant Phthalo Green all eye colour are achievable. With the strength of the colour in this set, mixed with Titanium White, you will achieve the perfect highlight colour for the forehead area of your portraits. In the case of darker flesh tones, mix a touch of Ultramarine Blue.
