Classic Watercolor Figure Painting Featuring President Teddy Roosevelt
Step 7: Coloring The Collar And Adding Depth
Shift to a more purple color by adding more Ultramarine, and paint the collar for extra contrast. This will connect to the color of his epaulettes. Merge the collar with the neck and the shadow on the side of Teddy’s face, then soften the shadows around his cheeks. For the darkest shadows, mix Winsor Violet, Payne’s Gray, and more Ultramarine, and use it to fine tune any areas that need more depth, especially for the facial features and the hat’s shadows.
