Angelina Jolie Water Color and Ink Portrait with Process Photos!
Hello everyone, sharing with you all today a watercolor painting of Angelina Jolie and the process that went into creating it.
- A4 paper
This particular portrait was quite tricky because she has quite distinct facial features compared to the average woman. Her jaw is wider than average which made it a little challenging in creating the right proportions.
I was initially aiming for an ink portrait however, thought it needed a little color to make it more interesting.
Here are the steps below:
I start with a rough pencil sketch
Add all of the darkest tones
Using water I start to add mid-tones to the piece. I experiment with the ink going in random directions.
I then start adding color. I used red, orange and yellow as they are analogous on the color wheel. Red for the darker tones and yellow for the lighter ones. Towards the end I used a pen for the smallest details. There are some parts such as around the eyes & eye lashes that I could not change as the dark paint had already set.
Increased the saturation & contrast slightly of the image to create this finished result!
This piece took me a few hours to complete as I enjoyed experimenting with the different mediums and what could be possible.
