Paint beautiful and expressive portraits by combining watercolor with other mediums! What makes an eye-popping, eye-stopping portrait? It's all about contrast and the play of opposites, round shape against square, light against dark, transparent against opaque. Combining mediums allows you to push the inherent properties of each for a lively play of opposites. You'll be able to paint glorious lights, richer darks, intriguing texture and mysterious passages that create mood and a strong sense of place, space and character. Jean Pederson gives you all the advice and instruction you need to paint beautiful, expressive portraits filled with life and spirit. Let your portraits speak to the world! In this essential guide to expressive portrait painting you will: * Stretch your watercolor skills to the limit. Achieve darks deeper and richer than you ever dreamed; let colors mingle in imaginative ways on your paper; accomplish radiant skin tones by daring to layer vivid colors from the start. * Journey into the "what-if" zone. What if you paint on the vertical and direct the paint with a spray bottle? What if you add heavy bodypaint to watercolors for one-of-a-kind texture? What if you accentuate your subject with pencil, crayon or gouache? Don't "what-if" about this book. Grab it today for dynamic results in your portrait painting!
