Step 1: Outline your croquis figures with a light flesh toned watercolor pencil (download and trace my croquis here if you aren’t comfortable drawing your own!)

Step 2: Fill in the flesh areas and hair with a light watercolor wash

Step 3: Fill in bolder the bolder colors of the dresses with a more saturated wash of paint

Step 4: Now add facial, dress and hair details with corresponding watercolor pencils…keeping your marks very sketchy and quick!
