Creating a Palette for Flesh Tones

"Revised Flesh Tones Palette"
Oils on Glass,  c. Catherine Vines
This is my newest palette for painting faces. 
I'm still not happy with the red madder substitute for alizarin crimson; but I have such a large pile mixed, I can't stand to waste it.
I noticed I was a little reluctant to start painting today, just as if that wasn't what I most wanted to be doing. I think it was a superstitious response to how well yesterday's sessions went. Pretty silly, huh?
Once I started, everything went swimmingly!
