Portraits in watercolour

Portraits in watercolour

Once in a while, I am asked why I donĀ“t teach the technique of portrait painting in watercolour.

The answer is simple: I do not know how I do it myself. That sounds more interesting than it seems. In my tutorials I would like to tell you exactly how to work but watercolour technique can take me by surprise. One brush stroke invites another. The process is not entirely predictable. Of course, I start with a general idea how I want it to look, but that idea can change when I'm working. More than in oil painting technique I follow the unexpected.

Maybe I should pay more attention to myself whilst painting. Perhaps I can tell you then, more about that later.
