A couple weeks ago on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I found some fun little tutorials by Bob Davies on YouTube and can’t wait to find time to try more. Bob really has a fun technique that is super easy to watch and learn FOR FREE via YouTube on watercoloring simple figures of people.
This was really my first try of doing any type of people, and I had so much fun! You pretty much start with an upside down triangle with a circle on the top and go from there. How cool is that!?! And the interesting thing is how little you really have to do to create something our mind recognizes as a person without even adding ANY facial features.
I plan to watch more of Bob Davies tutorials and recommend them to anyone starting out in watercolor. He has short little lessons on boats and trees and landscapes and just about anything you can imagine.
It appears he is one of the co-founders of Art Tutor – an online video art school you can do at your own pace.
If you are out there somewhere reading this Bob Davies – THANK YOU for your generosity in sharing your talent.
Cheers & Hugs,
