Let’s deconstruct portrait painting to basics. Dots, lines and spots. Then let’s check materials: colours, paper, brushes and mix it together. We will discuss how to control a movement of water and pigment. How to render light and shadows. How to work with watercolour layers and where is a difference between hue and value.
