    One of the interesting observations I’ve had with watercolor and portraits is that watercolor’s transparency suits skin. I’ve drawn/painted portraits in pastel, colored pencil, oil paints, and graphite. I’ve always avoided watercolor because I liked the control in the other mediums. For some reason, I just picked up watercolor lately and I’ve tried it with portraits. It’s now become my favorite medium because the way it represents skin. (of course, I had to learn to give up a bit of control now that I’m working in watercolor LOL).

    Has anyone else on here noticed the “life” watercolor gives to skin tones?
