This is part four in a series of watercolor painting tutorials that will show you how to paint a hair and an ear. Then the series will continue demonstrating how to paint a face with watercolor techniques, leading up to a full watercolor portrait tutorial. What you see here is a speed painting at 8x normal time. Filmed and edited by my supercool husband Jeff. Thanks for watching!

    The artists who feel they take too long or haven’t reached her skill yet. Imagine if she had paint 3,000 paintings to get the experience to paint this ear. You just need to paint like a bat out of hell and practice techniques. It’s the only way to reach her level. You can do this though!

    OMG I can kind of draw hair (digitally) but I hate it so much. It either comes out perfect, eh, or too stringy like I just drew a bunch of lines. I hate drawing hair and skin, but those things make ur drawing more realistic.

    Uhmm. Maam is it possible to add the masking fluid for highlights after the watercolor dried or something? Im used to acrylic paints and i learned to put white and light areas for highlights last. Thanks

    Thank  you so much, Kelly.  I loved watching this.  I have been doing art for a long time and am self taught.  However, your video inspires me to get some instruction.  In fact I am tearing up in appreciation of your skills and your willingness to share what you know.  Namaste'

    90 minutes, she means actual painting time. Not the drawing, masking, waiting for the paint and paper to dry completely, removing the masking, etc… That should help everyone who feels discouraged, watching this amazing artist.
