First Time WaterColor painting by Salma-H First Time WaterColor painting by Salma-H
Hey Everyone,

I know I know, y'all think I'm dead by now, I'm sorry but college happened.
I still draw tons of stuff but it's mostly for college now.

This is the first time I try water colors woo!
I did not use any reference for the eye so forgive me for the crappy anatomy.

materials used:
Windsor and Newton watercolor pans set of 12 (that shit's expensive man!)
300 grrm rough canson paper
artificial hair brushes
pebeo india ink for the lashes
pebeo white artist acrylic for the highlights (cause apparently the uniball white ink pen isn't sold in egypt.... like at all :/)

photograph of painting.

thank you thank you thank you! :D I've been using acrylics as a preferred painting medium, untill a college professor encouraged me to try watercolors ( I was afraid I'd end up with a huge muddy mess on a what used to be white paper), so thank you very much for the positive feedback, I really appreciate it :)

This is amazing!! I myself am trying to get into watercolor, do you have any tutorials or ones that you used that really helped?

Salma-H Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I've been searching watercolor tutorials for a while now, and using the techniques I find in my acrylic/ guache paintings, so I had a nice platform to start painting with watercolors.
Deviantart has an amazing selection of watercolor tutorials.

Personally this is one of my favorite tutorials...ever, it helped me greatly.

and NEVER underestimate the power of youtube, you can search "how to make splatters" "how to make splashes" "how to avoid mud" etc etc you'll get hundreds of awesome, super helpful videos.

thank you, and hope I've helped :)
