Monochrome Portrait

Monochrome Portrait

Paint a portrait using only one color and master the concept of value! Use our tracing technology to draw a precise portrait outline and bring it to life with one shade of watercolor paint of your choice as Matt teaches you how to control the lightness and darkness of your color application to depict depth, dimension, and detail with a limited palette. Practice these techniques with the portrait image provided or dive in to creating with your own photo! Photo in this experience was provided by Ayo Ogunseinde via Unsplash.
