Tracing the Template
As you did with the other facial features, trace the template also onto baking (waxed) paper to be sure you get the lines in the correct places.
Study the reference photo to determine all the tones and then prepare to mix the paints for midtone, highlight, and shadowed area.
Blocking in Various Tones of Paint
Refer to your reference photo and block in the colors for the various skin tones in the appropriate places on the canvas.
Fading In the Skin Tones
While you may have blended the colors more distinctly on other facial features, fade them in softly for the wrinkles. Then follow Nolan closely as he shows just how to make each wrinkle look lifelike. It is a fascinating process.
Painting the background
After having painted all the different facial features, take great care to choose a background that will not compete with your portrait.
