Please watch the video to see full painting process: Video Process
Step 1: Base
I started wet on wet for painting the base tones of the skin.
I used pale pink and a couple of red tones in this step.
Step 2: Layering
After paint dried, I layered again pink brown and red to add shadows and depth.
I also painted lips using red tones.
Step 3: Eyes
I painted eyes wet on dry using brown tones and black for details. I left few empty area in the eye to create light reflections.
Step 4: Hair + Eyebrows
I painted first layer of hair wet on dry.
Once paint dried, I added details with brush strokes using a darker brown.
Step 5: Flowers + Shirt
I painted flowers very quickly, I used a flat wash for leaves and I added few details with brush strokes.
I painted roses with a bright pink, once paint dried I added shadows with a dark fuchsia.
To make the shirt almost white, I painted the shirt wet on wet using very diluited orange and pink watercolors.
Step 6: Details
Once painting dried completely, I added details with white gel pen and pigment fineliners.
Step 7: End
This is the final result.
