About This Class

The watercolor portrait can be a beautiful, expressive thing. In this class, I'm going to show you a few different techniques for mixing skin tones, how to create cohesive color palettes, and take you through all the steps I enjoy when preparing and creating loose, colorful watercolor portraits.
