Do you enjoy loose watercolor? Art that has mystery, leaving something unexplained to the viewer, left to their own interpretation? Do you avoid drawing faces because it’s too hard? Do you want to find your own style? Then this course is for you! I’ll guide your learning from quick sketch through the final touches to create a unique, one of a kind Pink Lady of your own. No two ladies will look the same because your style, your paint application, your excitement will all come out to play. You’ll be thrilled at what you accomplish!
This course includes my Pink Lady Sketch Only course free (a $10 value) and 3 other lessons (about 70 minutes of video). With my professional background in learning management, I’ve edited so there’s no wasted time learning to create your own unique pink lady. I focus on immediate access to instruction and my process:
- Sketch: I demonstrate how to sketch a loose face in an easy to remember way. Quick steps to get you started and moving right into painting. This is the starting point for loose watercolor. Video: ~15 minutes
- Underlayers: I explain the value/transparency of each pigment, brushes, washes, softening hard lines, moving paint, lifting out paint, breaking up solid blocks of color with splatter technique. In this layer, we build up layers adding interest as support for our focal point (the pink lady). Video: ~16 minutes
- More Layers, Mistakes, Magic: I demonstrate how to analyze your painting before taking this next step of adding even more layers. I show the importance of holding and rolling the brush to stay loose, the wet in wet technique, unifying and softening areas. I show you how overworking is not the end of the world and how to push through. You’ll see magic moments occur that can never be done with intention, only intuitively. Video: ~21 minutes
- Salt Technique, White Paint, Detail Work: I demonstrate the salt technique to add texture, when to keep the magic or let it go, using white to restore lightness in areas overworked, and fine details in face and hair, where the contrast and hard lines go and why, splattering with gouache, exploring, testing, pushing your boundaries. I discuss final analysis, how to let go of precious, expect you will get a different pink lady each time you paint her as that’s the essence of loose watercolor style. Video ~17 minutes.
