Classic Watercolor Figure Painting Featuring President Teddy Roosevelt
Step 11: Final Touches
To finish off the figure painting, add the final touches and fix any areas if necessary. For example, Steve uses a diluted version of the dark purple mix to paint in Teddy’s glasses, the glasses’ cord, and touching up the lighter shadows. He also suggests using a kneaded eraser if you want to get rid of the pencil lines, but if the linework is good, it’s fine to leave them in. Be careful not to overpaint or tweak your painting too much to avoid sabotaging your own work, and feel free to step back whenever you need to evaluate the overall effect of your figure painting. When you’re satisfied, leave it to dry, and start working on your next model!
