A Look Into My Sketchbook: Portrait painting in watercolours

in art •  8 months ago

Hi Steemit, 

Today, I wanted to share with you my process in creating these illustrations, that I have made for the 100heads challenge. 

I got most of the reference pictures from sktchy. This really cool app artist/muses, go check it out!

Here are the drawings: 

They all start with a loose fineliner sketch that for the first one, looked a bit like this: 

I then go ahead and grab my watercolour set and add some color and shading where I see fit. 

What's cool about already having the fineliner sketch is that it lets me be really loose in the watercolour part. 

I just got a tripod, so I'm planning on filming the painting process, would you be interested in seeing that?

Thanks for checking this post out!
