The part not show here is the first stage which is the block-in. I first block in all of the shapes of the face with a dark umber pastel. I create the shapes using a two-tone value range, making the shadows solid and leaving the highlight areas untouched. After that, I add color in layers.

I use a limited palette with Nupastel and Rembrandt pastels.
