Watercolor eyes in flesh tone tutorial by jane-beata Watercolor eyes in flesh tone tutorial by jane-beata
MATERIALS

✿ 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

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.
