Intermediate to Advanced Lesson in
Painting a Figure
This lesson shows using a limited palette (cerulean and phthalo blue, raw sienna, quinacridone red, dioxazine purple) to mix all the shades you need for a professional looking painting. (Color substitutions are included.)
Trace the outline page and follow along with the video and/or instructions to work step by step. Tips on painting believable shadows are included, as well as skin tones and backgrounds.
When you work step by step, you'll get amazing results, as well as excellent guided practice in mixing and applying colors in layers for a realistic result.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
