Ballerina in Watercolor for Intermediate Level Painters
Ballerina in Watercolor
Ballerinas are a classic subject.
In this lesson, the areas are simplified into background, tutu color and skin tones.
A good drawing of the features is easy when you do it in pencil and can erase and correct until you're satisfied.
Mix your colors and apply flat washes of color for the tutu and the skin.
Using opaque white is essential for this painting - it brings the tutu to life.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
