Trois crayons, or three-colored chalk, was a technique Watteau may have learned by studying drawings by Peter Paul Rubens.

Made to study the movement of this woman’s costume, Watteau kept hundreds of drawings together as a reference for any composition. The central figure appears in Embarkation for Cythera at the Louvre.
