Secrets to Painting Realistic Faces in Watercolour Book:
The key to a successful portrait is getting the face right. If the result doesn't look like your subject, then nothing else follows and no amount of tinkering will ever bring it round. Part of this is the fundamental process of getting the features correctly balanced.
In this nicely structured book, the Parks will show you how to achieve this as they work progressively through how to be comfortable with your materials, how to work from drawings and photographs and how to handle colours and skin tones.
Each of the chapters includes a demonstration of the topic in hand and you'll only ever be learning one thing at a time - invaluable in a subject as complex as portraiture. After they've dealt with the basics, the authors include a look at common mistakes before a final chapter on 'Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone' - a look at more complex subjects and techniques that, as gently as the rest of the book, encourages you to think about developing your skills further.
The DVD which is included, where you can see many of the techniques demonstrated in action, is a bonus.
