How To Paint An Ultra-Realistic Pair of Human Lips
Step 1: Prepping And Sketching
On the sheet of Arches 7″ x 5″ watercolor paper, lightly sketch a pair of lips and some teeth. It can be a picture of your own or someone else’s, and if you want, you can put on the lipstick before taking a picture (or just use the color for reference later). When you’re done, tape it to the Masonite board with the masking tape. If you don’t have a wooden board, you can tape the paper to a hard surface which you don’t mind getting paint on. Then, block in the white highlights on the lips with masking fluid. Let the fluid dry completely before proceeding.
