This is my first real attempt at painting the beautiful skin and facial features of black people. I don't think I have perfected it yet, but I think I made a fair attempt. (Sorry, no pun intended.)
Incidentally, living in Utah, I don't have many culturally diverse neighbors and friends--almost everyone I know is caucasian. If you are or if you know anyone who would like to model for me, especially those of non-caucasian descent, please leave a comment!
