Painting Skin Tones

"Hero" is on the easel again.  Today I'm painting the boys' faces.  There isn't a set formula for skin tones because they vary so much according to the individual, the lighting, the time of day and time of year.  For these fair-skinned boys in winter light I'm using a lot of white with pinks and blues and very little yellow.
