Gringo Nicasio

Acrylic on Cardstock - 4 x 6 inches  NFS
My dad sent me this photo of myself at the ranch where we took Tim Horn's workshop. So many compositional no-no's but it just seemed right, so I painted a quick sketch. I think I'm finally starting to get some more warmth in the sunlight areas.
The one color I'm finding terribly difficult to mix from my 3-color limited palette is that California sky color. I mean, the sky is just blue and white, but I fear it's a different blue than I'm using. I did some charts comparing the various blues I have, but of course, I can't find it anywhere.
