In this workshop I will go through the process step-by-step of how I created the above painting of Mother Nature.
There are a total of five videos including the intro, plus a fifty minute + bonus video where I talk all about style development and what that means to me, and share with you all my tips and ideas on how to develop and cultivate yours! 🙂
What will you learn in this class:
- Getting familiar with our watercolors
- Exploring A three-quarter turned face with step-by step drawing and painting.
- Layering with watercolors to create luminous glazes and delicate skin tones
- Using elements of nature in our portraits to tell a visual story
- Combining watercolor with color pencil techniques to create depth and detail
- Applying masking fluid
- Creating a soft “glow effect” with watercolor
- Using texture elements to create variation and interest
- Style development ideas, and suggestions on how to grow in your artistic journey
What kind of supplies to I need for this workshop?
You don’t have to go buying everything on the list, many things might be substituted for materials you already have! Below is a list of tools I will be using, along with links. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions
• Watercolor paper (I used hot press, 12×16’ but please use whatever you are comfortable with)
• Watercolors (A basic set will do. Better to get a few good quality basic colors than tons of colors in a low-quality grade. I used mostly the new Jane Davenport sets – Natural Palette and Bright palette.)
• Paintbrushes (It’s good to have at least a medium sized soft round and fine liner for details)
• Color pencils (I used the Prisma color pencils but any soft color-pencils will do!)
• White gel pen (a great one is the Uni-bal Signo Mitsubishi pen)
• Plastic wrap & kitchen salt
• Stencils (optional)
• Colorless masking fluid (I used Windsor Newton, which is a great brand, but please use whatever you have on hand.)
• An old brush or silicon clay tool (this is what I use) to apply the masking fluid.
• A graphite pencil and eraser for the sketch.
I hope to see you in class!
