  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Draw a sketch of a face or use a face Stencil or a face stamp.

    Step 2

    Contour the areas using umber and do the lips I've used magenta and ruby

    Step 3

    Increase shadows with umber and add a very diluted magenta

    Step 4

    Define the hair strand before adding water. Cool thing about Dina's scribble sticks is they don't leave any marks(unless you want to, cause that's ok too)

    Step 5


    Step 6

    For the background I used magenta again. I wanted to keep it clean

    Step 7

    With your stencil go over it with your paintbrush

    Step 8

    Your watercolor may bleed to me that's ok , watercolor is not a control freak. You can use markers if you want it perfect!
