    In This Lesson:

    Mark establishes the darkest darks in the hair and the eye sockets. Then he places reflected light into the shadow pattern and works on the halftones and the edges. With that, he carries the painting to completion.

    In This Course:

    Learn to paint the portrait in watercolor with this new course from the late Mark Westermoe.

    Mark Westermoe was a renowned artist, illustrator, and instructor, known for his work on many feature film posters such as Braveheart, Total Recall, and Home Alone.

    Mark will cover all the tools and materials youʼll need for work in watercolor. You will start with small watercolor sketches and work your way to painting finished portraits using the Reilly Method.

    You will learn to not simply copy your subject, but to add your own attitude to your portraiture.

    In Mark’s words: “Try to bring yourself into whatever subject youʼre drawing or painting. As long as you have that youʼll maintain your interest.”
