Every fall we begin our watercolor classes with a portrait class.
We painted people portraiture.
We painted animal portraits.
We grunged backgrounds and painted portraits right on that grunged paper.
Discussions included facial features, skin tones and color theory, composition as it relates to portraiture, and two ways to approach a portrait in watercolor.
If you would like to see all the examples of portraits painted by these artists click here or scroll to the top of the blog and click on the page labeled Student Art: Watercolor Portrait 2016.
Thank you to all my students who share their work here!
