Learning something new

YouTube has always been my go to for tutorials. Lately I have been struggling to find good tutorials on YouTube. And then I came across a video from a watercolorist about a new learning platform, skill share.

Decided to check it out, especially since they had a special going on now. I was excited to find many many tutorials in there! 

I watched a tutorial from Ana Victoria Calderon and learned to create patterns and texture with watercolor. Decided to give it a try on my portrait painting. 

I experimented with a few things here. Firstly, darker skin tone. The pose. The texture on the background, the whale and also her hair. 

Really excited about how she turned out! I am really digging this new technique of creating new textures and patterns. Will do it again.. and again!
