How do you choose color for the lips when painting a realistic-ish portrait?

· · Web · 1 · 2 · 2


It's hard to say a single approach, particurarly with having to account for skin complexion. IDK if there is an easy answer.

Looking up some references that fit and doing some experiments would be helpfull maybe.

It's a good excuse to do a lip study 😁

Ah well.. I'm already doing the lipstudy in the photo study then 😅 problem is choosing the correct color without color picking from the reference and without the chosen color looking like lipstick. Might still do that, to get a better idea of the relation of skin and lip color and continue from there. Thank you :)
