13 Al­most there

Once I have the ba­sic colours down and I’m happy with the re­sult, I cre­ate a de­fault layer on top and start paint­ing. I use the same Oil Pas­tel brush for some hard edges and My Chunky Pas­tel brush for smooth­ing and blend­ing. I’m try­ing to keep some of the orig­i­nal strokes that I like while re­fin­ing the im­age, adding con­trast and de­tails. I try not to pick the colours from the paint­ing, but rather from the colour wheel, oth­er­wise things gets muddy. I also ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent pa­per tex­tures at this point and dif­fer­ent brushes: a smoother tex­ture for some parts of the face, bris­tle brushes for the hair, and so on.
