i did this for my church brother Peter and Sophia who is getting married this 25 september 2010. Came out with this idea to watercolor potrait. Was a little skeptical as i'm bad at drawing human. So, the materials needed : aquarelle water color paper, 8'X12' photoframe, pocket watercolor set, and the sample photo that i'm going to paint. Computer playing the singapore series " The Pupil" which helped me passed the time pretty fast :)
so step by step in painting this romantic drawing :
1. measure and sketch the figures on the watercolor paper.2. apply colors, start from background, then human figure, then detail it up with more strokes and shadows.
3. Outlining with a sharper pencil. In this case, i felt pen artlining the figure could be a little to harsh, so i suggested pencil. Detail the drawing with strokes.
4. Frame the drawing and i'm done!
Time taken : 4 hours
