Want to Learn How to paint a LOOSE and VIBRANT watercolor portrait?
In this comprehensive class, I share my entire portrait painting process to show you how to paint animated and colorful watercolor portraits in as little as 30 minutes.
Working out of a sketchbook, I simplify each step, and will show you how to turn a photograph or simple pencil drawing into a portrait. I will demonstrate for you how to combine elements of realism and impressionism to create a loose style when painting. This class contains four step-by-step portrait demonstrations.
In addition, this class will cover the following topics:

Find a reference photograph of a person known to you whom you'd like to paint. Using the techniques and processes shown in this class, transfer the drawing over to your sketchbook or watercolour paper, and paint with watercolour. Upload your project to this class! I will provide feedback and answer any questions posted in the discussions and projects.
Alternate activity: you can paint one of the portraits demonstrated in this class by following along with the demonstration. How about changing some of the facial features or trying some different colour combinations?
