Step 2

Enhance the saturation with R74 Powder. It is necessary to lay out strokes in the direction of petal growth already at the initial stages, noting the curves and general plasticity.

Step 10

Add Faber-Castell 239 Lilac to refine the details (emphasize the plastic of the petals, work with the middle of the flower, add veins on the petals). If necessary, clear lines can be shaded with R74 Powder (be sure to clean the writing node of the marker after work).

In the final, add a white gel pen and, together with the brushpen, add the hairs on the stem, the veins on the flower petals, on the bud and the stamens.
