    I am putting my toe into a tutorial with Glynis Barnes-Mellish on Art Tutor. She is a magician, but It is identified as being for advanced watercolourists. It might be too much for me, but worth a try.

    Ooooh best of every successful wish for that, Rod!  It tickled me to see this from you this morning.  Darina’s lovely paintings yesterday made me go out to find a video or two or more to share here too!

    I’m so excited to see yours! 👏🏻❣️

    Witty Gritty Paper Co., offers us a fabulous 2-Part introductory tutorial about Portrait Painting!

    Darina shared such lovely paintings she did of herself and granddaughter. It made me realise that we should have at least one tutorial in our Portrait Forum. ❤️

    Dear Yvonne. Well thank you.
    I’m learning to paint portraits (including cherries, dandelions and others) from Mr. Barry Toshio Shiraishi on You Tube. His video is very long and detailed. It suits me because I do not understand English. So I just did what he did. I think I learned a lot of basics of watercolor technology from him. Now I can watch other videos because I know what they are talking about. Even English is not completely foreign to me. That year, I just learned something. So watercolor brought me to English. Thanks again for Doodlewash.  It’s a great community with great people.

    You’re welcome Sharon! I watched a lot of Portrait videos but not many were really directed at true beginners so I settled on these to get us started.  🙂

    Thank you so much for the link, Darina!  I will plan a visit today and check it out!  I am so proud of you for your openness to learning everything watercolour – it makes for a fun and exciting adventure – plus the bonus of learning a new language too! ❤️

    Please very much. Perhaps Mr Barry will help somebody, just as he helped me.  Thank you for your words. This is a balm on my soul.

    You are welcome Darina! Thank you for sharing him with us.  Oh!  Since today is Tuesday’s Tutorials of our favourites, would you put his channel link in that forum’s list for us too, please?  ❤️

    I know this (Witty Gritty) is a beginner video, but I was confused by the skin tones vid. Glennis uses only 3 colours, yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, and cerulean blue. She simply mixes those three up, in various proportions and various strengths and manages to get pale caucasian, afro-caribbean, and olive type skin tones. Just seems simpler to remember those three for everything.

    Yes that does seem simpler, Rod.  Sometimes what comes easy for one, does not for another so it’s good to have options. 🙂
