Always wanted to paint realistic watercolor portraits? Want to know how to make skin, eyes, lips and hair look naturally?
All these secrets and techniques I share in my course. I also show how to paint catchlights, reflections, work with shadows, values and midtones so that to make a face look 3-dimensional.
This is step by step workshop where you will see how I paint portraits, starting from pensil sketch to final watercolor layer with my comments.

This course includes 1.4 hours of visual and audial lectures.

I show my palette and start painting my 1st watercolor layer. I give 3 colors I use to paint skin. I start painting eyes and lips. I also show how and where I reserve white for catchlights.
I make my 2nd watercolor layer, namely I indicate shadows, paint eyelashes, eyelids, brows, nose.
Description: I show how to paint hair in a loose manner, without overworking it. Also I add more colors to skin.
