First I drew a basic sketch using pencil and applied the base colors with a light hand balance. Since, I changed the hues and the source of light from the original picture, planning of the colors was important. I used oil pastel on board to get the grainy effects of pastels. While detailing the hues, a heavy hand balance was maintained. Smudging technique was used to achieve the realistic effect and for impressionistic random looking background, light to dark approach was employed.
