One of my favorite painting steps is the blushing. Blushing gives the baby the rosy cheeks, adorable hands and kissable toes needed to look like she's alive.
I like to paint my blushing as if it were a topographical map. My first layer of blush is faint and wide. Each subsequent layer is a little more pigmented and covers a smaller area. This makes the blushing look just right. I also like to mix my own blushing color out of Genesis Red, Pyrole Red, Burnt Sienna and several other paints. When my palette looks like its covered in blood, I know I've reached the optimal blushing color. LOL
