Starting in the upper right-hand corner, paint swooping down to the bottom left of the bag, allowing some strokes to be unblended.

  2. For the face, add eyes using White and Blue. Use Black to outline the eyebrows, eyes, eyelashes, pupils, and nose. For the lips, use Fuchsia. Outline the lips with Black and highlight with White. Paint the shirt in Blue and Beige.
