Learn to draw portraits for the very beginner artist. This whimsical mermaid portrait teaches drawing skills with emphasis on developing harmonious features with proportions, shading and highlighting without the technical difficulties of creating a realistic portrait. We simplify complex forms, learn to create smooth skin tones and play with bright colors as we learn to use watercolor pencils and ink pens. These techniques are meant to teach skills that will inspire the imagination.
