Portrait in Watercolor and Ink
Yesterday I completed this week’s lesson in my Let’s Face It 2020 class. The teacher was Deanna Strachan-Wilson.
I really enjoyed this. First, on Tuesday, I drew it lightly on a piece of 300 lb. Fabriano watercolor paper measuring 18″ x 24.” Then I painted it yesterday. I used calligrapy ink and a paintbrush to paint his clothes. Then I used a calligraphy marker, which has a chiseled tip on one end and a fine tip on the other, to do the outlining and some detail in the hair. I also decided to paint his hair a greenish blue color instead of blond.
I hope everyone is staying well! I don’t have much of a problem with being on lockdown because of the Covid-19 virus, but I hope it is over soon, because people need their jobs! It’s hard to know when things will get back to normal. In the meantime, I wish you all well.
I have lots of art projects to do, books to read, and family to visit with. So I am never bored!
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
