Just finished this painting.  I admire watercolorist Paul McCormack and tried to use some of his techniques for building skin tones.  My skin tone palette was mostly Yellow Ochre, Cerulean Blue and permanent Rose.  The granulation of the Cerulean Blue was a challenge and I may substitute Cobalt Blue (which was suggested in a demo) for the next painting that includes skin tones.

I also found that you really need to adjust the cast shadows to allow for the detail to be shown in the face.  I never want to copy a photograph.  The finished painting has to make sense and stand on its own.
