About This Class

3e315a2b

This is the follow up class to "Watercolour Portrait Sketch". If you haven't enrolled in that class, I encourage you to start there and then come back to this one. In this class I will take you through my process of how I achieve a vivid watercolour portrait using a subtle painting method. In watercolour it is very important to "babysit" all your "puddles of colours" to make sure they aren't too strong or too pale. I will show you how to use subtlety in your painting to achieve highlights and shadows on the face in a realistic yet dramatic style.

Some artists that inspire me are ...
