Colouring with Promarkers #2 - Skin (caucasian)

This is a really quick "How to.." as I personally only use 2 colours to do caucasian skin: Ivory and Blush, so lets get down to it. As before I am using the Sitting Gorjuss Girl of set #1 from Sugar Nellie, stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Concord card. 
Ok, firstly here are the 2 colours of promarkers I use...

I colour the skin area with Ivory using a circular motion

Then I add Blush by dotting colour to areas that I think would be in shadow e.g. just below the fringe/hairline, the neck and the top of the arm just below the sleeve as well as areas that would naturally have a bit more colour, for instance cheeks (elbows and knees are other places but not in this particular image)

I then go back over the whole area with Ivory, again in a circular motion in order to blend the colours.

And this is the image so far with the skin and hair done...
