First of all, I draw the fig­ure on her own layer, and then the back­ground on a sep­a­rate layer be­hind her. I have found that this way of do­ing things will make it much eas­ier to draw part of the veil be­hind her. On a new layer be­hind the fig­ure, I paint in the ba­sic shape of the veil fol­low­ing a sketch I made ear­lier. I set the layer Opac­ity to 20 per cent. There are no folds or shad­ing here, just a flat shape in a sin­gle shade of dark pur­ple. On an­other new layer, I use that same shade of pur­ple to paint in some folds in the fab­ric. To do so, I set the layer Opac­ity to 40 per cent. I keep do­ing this un­til I have about five lay­ers, both in front of and be­hind the fig­ure.
