Fabulous Portrait: Watercolour With Digital Rendering

Instructions:

1. Make a sketch of the project to have a general idea.

2. Take pictures of a human model for added realism.

3. Capture and create textures. You can photograph anything: e.g. clothing, plants, all types of buildings. The more images available, the more interesting the project. Most of the textures in the project shown here were produced with watercolour and modelling paste, resulting in tremendous colour and brightness. 

4. Scan everything.*

5. Combine all the elements. For those who are unfamiliar with new technologies, this step may seem complicated. Handling digital files is a specialty in itself. You can download free image editing software. Becoming familiar with this type of software is like learning to use a new medium. Here are a few books on the subject to help you learn how to use image editing software and modify digital files.

*If you don’t have a scanner at home, you can have your documents scanned at a copy centre for just a few dollars. Stores that offer photo printing services usually also provide digitization services. 

You will need:

  • Daniel Smith watercolour
  • Liquitex modelling paste
  • Watercolour paper (XL)
  • Scanner 
  • Adobe Photoshop for editing  
  • Corel Draw for touch-ups
  • Digital camera or cell phone to take pictures
