Best Watercolor Portraits By Famous Artists

Here is a list of top artists who are famous for their amazing watercolor portraits. I have selected the best watercolor artists to showcase their beautiful paintings. Watercolor is a medium that demands great skill and experience. Painting a portrait using this medium with utmost perfection is often a challenge for beginners in watercolor painting.

Painting a watercolor portrait requires a good idea of light and shade. It needs to be handled carefully to obtain a natural look for the painting. After several layers, one can bring the painting into a beautiful piece of artwork. Sometimes you can paint from life or can use a photograph for reference. Use the largest brush that seems comfortable for the area, and only transition to a smaller brush for greater control or finer detail when absolutely necessary. Don’t get caught up in trying to use a small brush to cover a large area. It would be much easier if you know your subject deeply. This would make things much easier while painting. I have gone through several watercolor portrait paintings and hand-picked a few spectacular portraits for my readers. Enjoy! 🙂
