Study different color palettes and play with the versatility of watercolor to paint the human body
By painting other people’s bodies, you are facing your own. Through this confrontation, in addition to color and light, the painter and teacher Ale Casanova deals with themes such as normality and intimacy. To do this, watercolor allows you to work more quickly and cleanly, since it is a versatile technique rich in solutions with which you can do everything you set out to do.
Together with Ale, you will learn to face the human figure using a simple technique to achieve results that are both traditional and contemporary. Thus, you will study different color palettes and combine the drawing and the watercolor stain. And, if you want to deepen your learning between brushes, he will also teach you Artistic Portrait in Watercolor and Oil Painting from scratch in his other two courses.
