A Portriat of an Artist in Watercolor

Watercolor painting on watercolor paper, 1997

This is a watercolor portrait painting from live as my class demonstration to my Watercolor Painting for Illustrators class students back in 1997 when I taught in the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. This portrait painting demonstration took me only a half hour.

Though you may think that I may use may colors and a rich color palette, however, as always, I only use a very limited color palette, often only include the three primary colors.

For a step-by-step demonstration of portrait painting, please come to visit our online demonstration area, and also please subscribe to our "Fun & Joy" Newsletter, new painting lessons will be available to you monthly from our Newsletter.

If you are interested to have your portrait done, check out my portrait commission information.
