baby watercolor portrait progress

Cute Little boy smiling in front of a mirror showing the back of his head.
I love the way his face is so bright and the reflection in the mirror behind him is more a warmly suggested view.

Still working on improving my portraiture craft specifically in the realm of “realism” . This is a progressive shot of Little Ben’s portrait, where I am currently adding darks mediums and lights to get the values right so I can start on the details to finish. One step at a time 🙂

watercolor portraits with realism

It is an honor to attend a class with Stan Miller at Spokane Art Supply on Wednesdays 1-4pm for Intermediate/Advanced Watercolor instructions.  It is so inspiring to work with such a talented master artist. I am working on improving my craft specifically in the “realism” realm. Currently working with two grandkid images,  this is Ben on the right. I am following Stan’s suggestion to focus up close and get the realism down pat… instead of doing the whole body layout.Ben and cousin reflection
