Artist Stuart Loughridge introduces a three stage method of applying watercolor and pencil on white paper that can be used in landscape or portrait. It’s transportable, can be done anywhere, and there aren’t a lot of materials needed. He shows a couple of examples of portraits he did in 45-minute sittings, showing his initial lay in graphite lines, the watercolor tones, and the refining graphite lines. The portraits are not exact likenesses of the sitters, but he’s not worried about that. He’s more worried about the essence of the person, allowing more dither in the drawing. There is a lot more free play of dither in the landscape. You can make stuff up, play with contours and the horizon more. Either way, with this method you have the ability to make adjustments as you develop your drawing.
