Watercolor eyes in flesh tone tutorial


✿ watercolor paper block (tip: if you don't work on block and use only paper, stretch it, otherwise it will curl. More tips > WATERCOLOR PAPER GUIDE)

brushes: no.10 & no. 4 round sable (used for most of the painting), no. 2/0 (I didn't use pen during this painting, I tried not to rely on anything but this last brush when working on details)

watercolors (I used liquid watercolor Ecoline for this painting)

white ink for details

For more tips on materials, see detailed articles written for %projecteducate
Artist's Toolbox: WATERCOLOR EQUIPMENT II, Additional Tools

Any further questions I will gladly answer, please let me know if this tutorial needs corrections or is not comprehensive enough.

▲ Please note that this might not be the most perfect or proper way of how to approach watercolor painting, it is merely an explanation how I worked.

Thank you for seeing this :)
Thank-you for this, always interesting to see how another artist works. Also makes me realize how ass backward I do things. :)

Haha, you sure know there is no correct way to do stuff, it could have been done by many other ways, at the moment I work from larger more transparent layers to adding details at the end. It's fun trying new things though :)
