STEP 1

Start with SKETCHMARKER SM-R55 Cotton candy, pass through the petals of the flower and bud.

STEP 2

Enhance the saturation with SKETCHMARKER SM-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.

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 SKETCHMARKER SM-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.
