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.
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.
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! ❤️
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.
