Warm Heart Watercolor
I was recently asked to illustrate the phrase "Malawi: the warm heart of Africa". Due to a quick deadline, I decided to bust out the watercolors.
I hadn't used watercolors in well over 5 years, so it was fun to revisit the medium. I'll take you through the process below.
I began with a rough sketch:
I then washed in the skin tone:
Starting with the eyes, I began to focus on the details. I also darkened the darks and added rich medium tones. I love to approach painting as a sculptor would--shaping and constructing the face with color:
Continuing with details, I focus on the nose and mouth. Finally, I work on the ears, shirt and add final highlights to complete the painting seen above:

Cory Commision Pt 1
I always love to see how artists work! I like to watch an empty canvas or a rough sketch become something beautiful.
Recently, my friend Cory Basil commissioned me to paint a caricature for him. His only instructions were to include a raven with attitude. Sweet!!!
Over the next few posts, I will take you through the process and show you how I work.
First, I begin with a thumbnail to get the composition and idea down.
Next, I begin to rough in color to set the overall tone and mood. At this point, very little attention is paid to likeness and it is kept super loose. The key here is color and mood.
