In drawing the final head, I simply scribbled light pink and yellow marks to suggest hair and face, not too precisely. After that, I used a touch of dark pink for shadows on the face and darker ochre for shadows on the hair - note that none of these marks is very heavy. Lastly, I added a bit of red for the mouth, a little black or dark brown for the eyes, nostrils and chin, and a couple of highlights in white on the nose and cheekbones. I also added a light blue reflected light on the dark side of the face. A relatively acceptable head has been produced without too much work.
