A Study of Skin Tone
A Piece From My Senior Portfolio by Olivia Porrill
This piece is an in-depth look into the colorful combinations that make our skin tone, entitled “Self Portrait as an Array”. It is also a part of my senior portfolio, which is a huge factor in the college submission process. The key purpose of this piece was to practice my technical ability and explore the many colors that go into the skin. Throughout my execution of this piece, it became obvious that skin tone is much more than a single, flat tone. In fact, everyone has some combination of blue, green, red, yellow, or purple undertone to their skin.
