Painting the first layers on the face and the hair came next. I find that it usually works best to paint the darkest parts first. I follow the 'general to the specific' principle when painting hair - indicating large forms first and then painting smaller forms - and finally painting a few individual strands at the end.
Next came more color in the "white" dresses, the girls' arms and Grace's hair and face. The darkest colors were placed in the painting first, the lighter areas followed.
