  1. I started with a light wash using #119 Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.

  2. Marci’s skin tones were colored and shaded using layers of Gelatos™ in Peach.

  3. Gelatos™ in Guava added color to her lips and even a faint blush.

  4. To add the shading and dimension, I used PITT® Pastel Pencils #1121-226 and blended this using a blending stump and a little Gamsol. Even though these are pastel pencils, I find they still blend well using the Gamsol in small areas.

  5. Gelatos™ in Buttercream and Butterscotch colored her hair.

  6. I used PITT Artist Pens in Medium Flesh and Middle Purple Pink to color the shoes and belt as well as add just a little more depth under the hat and in some creases, blending immediately with a blending stump. Even though it is ink, you can blend it a little bit if you do it immediately. PITT Artist Pens in Ivory added a bit of shading to the pearls and Cadmium Yellow to the flower in her hat. A little Glossy Accents on the shoes, lips, and a dot on the pearls finished it all off.
