Featured at the end of the course (final lecture).Portraiture is often seen as a difficult and lengthy process. But it doesn’t have to be that way. An effective portrait sketch can be completed quickly using some simple yet effective watercolor techniques. Often, a sketch done with this process can look even better than a more ‘accomplished’ portrait, taking hours or even days! In this comprehensive course, I share my entire portrait painting process to show you how to paint animated and colorful watercolor portraits in as little as 30 minutes. Working out of a sketchbook, I simplify each step and will show you how to turn a photograph or simple pencil drawing into a portrait. I will demonstrate to you how to combine elements of realism and impressionism to create a loose style when painting. This class contains four step-by-step portrait demonstrations. In addition, this class will cover the following topics: Using my two-step process in painting a watercolor portrait - keeping colors fresh and vibrant. Using essential watercolour techniques such as wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry in portraiture. How to determine a light source and the correct use of values in painting. Materials - advice on what paints, paper, brushes and drawing materials you will need. How to sketch a subject easily by simplifying facial features into basic shapes. How to draw different male and female faces freehand. How to use the grid technique & tracing to transfer a photo of a portrait onto watercolor paper. So join me in this course,I’m excited to show you how to make portrait painting fun and easy!
