Classic Watercolor Figure Painting Featuring President Teddy Roosevelt
Step 2: How To Paint The Skin And Facial Features
Once you’re done, start the figure painting process by using the round sable brush (size 8) and mixing Yellow Ochre with Cadmium Red Deep for a skin tone. Use this color to paint Teddy’s face. Keep the paint light and diluted, as the lighting on his face is bright. You can also paint over any facial features since you will be adding darker details later on. For the highlights, wipe off the paint in your brush on a paper towel, then gently lift out paint on the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin.
