Realistic Watercolor Portraits || Suzanna Winton

This is a well thought-out attempt to provide a straightforward guide to painting portraits using examples of representative facial, colour and hair types. Nine step-by-step demonstrations cover most of the combinations you’re likely to find and are of real, rather than imaginary people.

The author makes a good job of her stated intent and the approach is admirably straightforward and easy to follow. I do have a slight issue with her representation of bodies (the faces are fine) as these seem rather bulky and non-articulated. Clothes also look as though they have been carved rather than cut, too. This is perhaps a bit of a quibble as the rest of the book is so admirably handled and I would recommend it for its good points alone, but it’s something to be aware of nonetheless.
