After Bourguereau acrylic portrait 12"x16" #361

I have done this exercise one other time, in a different format and on a different surface.  I am fascinated by the creaminess and blending of skin tones that Bourguereau was able to accomplish in his paintings.  Neither come naturally to me.  I really struggled with the limited colors I had, but it was fun anyway.
