How To Draw and Paint Drawgirl
Step 68

We continue this tutorial of Drawgirl by explaining and illustrating the sixty-eighth step of this pastel portrait painting.

The pastellist completes the last step of phase two, and as mentioned in phase one, the back of her head was emphasized by the massing in of the black hair strands over the rest of the visible portion of her hair area in the last step. In this step a partial softening has taken place over about half of her visible hair. In case you were wondering, her hair is darkest in the back not only because it is parted there, but also because the light is coming from our left, as mentioned earlier. It is more evident here, since black is used. In phase one, white was used and as a result, unless you knew what the artist was doing, the emphasis of her hair on the right (from our vantage point) would have made no sense.

Your coloring process continues still in... Step 69.
