Watercolor painting lesson from Cyrille Jubert. Cyrille says: In this lesson I'll show you how you can paint with just three colors plus one and get a portrait rich, vivid and colorful. The same applies, no matter the subject....an object, a landscape or a character.
"The first thing I will teach ...is to learn to 'see', namely to find the nuances, reflections from both the shadow color and light areas. It is essential that you now look at your subject through the eyes of an artist. ... When you are familiar with this exercise, you will see colors differently....Or at least I hope so."
Dog portrait shown here was painted following same steps.
