Natural Pigments The Watercolor Portrait Dvd
The complex characteristics of watercolor and ink enable a wide variety of approaches, from quick thumbnail sketches to highly rendered modeling. Artists such as Rembrandt and Goya transformed the ink sketch into a powerful art form by exploiting its ability to simultaneously capture the finest line along with broad melting masses of tone. Durer, Sorolla and Sargent showed that watercolor can deliver refined results as well as capture the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. This video focuses on the portrait painted with watercolor in full color and in monochrome. From broad abstract masses to precise anatomical detail, Rob executes two demos which explore the full range of effects watercolor offers.
All the materials are described along with step-by-step approaches which provides roadmaps to finished watercolor portraits.
