Color realism
The key to color painting is using warm and cool colors with the correct hue value and intensities

I can say from experience that manipulating hard and soft edges is the key to realism in portrait drawing and painting

1. Form is best revealed by accurately rendering objects with a well chosen local color modified by the right brightness value. (intensity)

2. Even if color is randomly chosen, as long as values are accurately rendered, form is revealed.

3.; When values vary randomly, form becomes difficult to discern regardless of
Consistency of color choice

4. In order to paint in a naturalistic style, one must place pigment of the right shape in the right color and value in the right place

Thank you for your appreciative comments on my work and giving me the chance to view your portraits. Like others have mentioned, you invite insight to the personality of your subjects through your rendering of the eyes.
