About This Course

Life Portrait Watercolour Painting Workshop with Artist Guidance

Commonly used mediums for portraits would always be either charcoal, graphite or oil. But have you ever thought of using watercolour for portraits? Come join us for this exciting and interesting Life Portrait Watercolour Painting Workshop!

During this one session of Life Portrait Watercolour Painting Workshop, you will be briefly introduced to watercolour painting of portraits through a life model. This workshop is suitable for those who would like to learn portrait watercolour painting and those with an interest in the portrait subject. This workshop is a great opportunity for learners to practise alla prima watercolour painting with a life model in the studio. You can look forward to knowing and understanding watercolour painting, methods and techniques of watercolour painting, application and innovation of special expression techniques used in watercolour painting in painting the subject.

Portraits are considerably difficult to master in watercolour paintings. Unlike still life and landscapes where subjects can be randomly added, reduced, modified, and transformed, figure painting usually requires very accurate form observation ability and good sketching skills. In particular, the portrayal of character expressions and dynamic poses requires students to have a deep foundation.

  1. Portrait. When painting portraits, it is important to capture the facial expression and the muscle structures, of the model.
  2. Half body and full body figures. When observing a half body or a full body figure, you have to configure the relationship between the body, face and the clothes, as well as the details of hands and feet. The composition of the whole painting is also important, the student will learn how to do a good composition by placing their figure with the background.
  3. Life model sketching trains the observation skills, form observation ability and prepares you for higher level sketching. Learn brush skills and skin texture characteristics for figure painting.
