Painting Watercolor Portraits

Just found a great video on painting a watercolor portrait and thought I’d share!

How to paint portrait Zimou Tan

Zimou Tan’s YouTube video is a joy to watch. It’s a completely talk free format. Starting with the blank watercolor paper and some great baroque music, you get a ‘voyeur’s’ eye view of the evolution of the painting process from start to finish. And there’s something clarifying and focusing about what baroque music does in the brain…. [Somebody has to have studied this…  I know it always helps me to get in the moment when doing calligraphy.] Anyway, by the middle of the short video I felt I was watching Zimou Tan’s thought process through his hand as he painted. Great video! Give it a view!
