Step 10: Techniques For Painting Moustaches
Using the Fibonacci size 6 brush, mix Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna for a tan color, then paint the hairs of the moustache while avoiding the highlighted areas. Paint the cast shadow caused by the nose by adding more Alizarin Crimson and Burnt Sienna, and for the darkest areas, add the dark indigo mixture used in the background and using that to paint a few strands of moustache hair. You can also use the same color around and inside the nostril, and remember to soften any turning edges.
