Portrait in Watercolour


One of the biggest problem in painting portraits in watercolour is getting the skin colour right. It took me quite a while to get this right and even so, I am not too happy with the skin tone. I did this is several layers, both for the highlights and shadows on the face as well as the hair.

Your artworks are lousy. You're a talentless hack who should go by the way of the dodo and...
Oh, wait, that's another guy.
Leaps and bounds, man! I would be proud of you if I'm not so overcome by jealousy.
Keep pushing the envelope.
Will drop by your office before the year end.
Yum-seng, mate.

Yeah...the most challenging part about painting potraits is the skin colour. Hard to master the art of detailing shadows. Need more polishing on this. Keep up the great work!
