Live Lessons: Orangutan With Watercolor Pencils
About This Lesson Series...
In this lesson series, we develop an image of an Orangutan with watercolor pencils on watercolor paper. We use watercolor pencils to gradually layer the colors to produce depth. Contrast is gradually increased with each layer. We also exaggerate some of the observed colors to make the painting more interesting.
