Day 15 of 29 Faces Challenge - Watercolour portrait of Jean-Luc Picard included in the #CACFanArt
Welcome all, I am now past the half way point to this 29 faces challenge. Today I am pleased to present my 15th Face which covers both the 29 Faces Challenge and this months #CACFanArt event. Scroll down to the link at the end of this post, if you are interested in seeing my process video. Otherwise continue reading for the process in pictures.
I started off with a sketch of Jean-Luc Picard on 12"x 9" hot pressed watercolour paper 140lb by Daler Rowney (The Langton)
Using a round system3 size 6 brush and Windsor & Newton travel watercolour palet I begin to add the colour. I know with watercolour you are suppose to go from light to dark but I sometimes like to add my dark in first and graduate it out.
Looking a little strange stage for sure lol
starting to look a little more lifelike but there is still something missing
The eyes in my opinion really bring life to a painting.
Adding the finishing touches
There you have it...... the finished painting.
