置，讓構圖能夠有趣些。接著, 仔細的將輪廓的細節畫出來。不需要將前面的鉛筆線擦掉，因為它也是畫面的一部份，而且也可以被後來的水彩所蓋掉。Complete the line drawing with pencil loosely and lightly and don't mind the detail. In the very first stage, the most important thing is to arrange the relative location of each subject. Make the composition interesting. Later, Concentrate upon the drawing and get it more accurate. Needless to erase the previous pencil line because it’s also part of the picture, and it can be completely overlapped by the following washes.
Apply the color on all of the subjects as the following pictures show.
To down-right subject, I use orange mixed with kinda brown to paint the body of doll. Meanwhile, I carefully brush the water along the boundary of the body and make the color diffuse off the body automatically.
To the other subjects, I use the stokes to loosely simulate the texture of the body of dolls, and apply the water on part of the boundary of wash when it is going to dry in order to blend the boundary as smooth as possible.Notice the intermixing of clear and blurry boundary, otherwise it could be too soft. As to yellow doll, I add a little purple to get the variety of color.
Wet the background thoroughly, and paint each part of the background respectively.
I take advantage of wet-in-wet technique to deal with the background.The process can be divided into several steps. In the beginning, paint the first wash with red or black according to the picture design. Then, apply the second smaller wash (dark brown or black) when the first wash is going to dry in order to work up the interesting patterns on the background. In this part, I try to use geometric patterns to decorate the background. There is no reason to precisely explain why I use it except the feeling of art.
Complete the masks and labels of the dolls. Paint the second washes on the bodies of dolls, which can make them more stereo.
Paint the chain to link the dolls up with their labels.
Finally, add some words on the labels, and use the white opaque pigment to highlight the reflection on the chains.
