How to Mix Your Own DARK Skin Tones Like a Pro with the Prima Complexion Set & Watercolorist Lucy Brydon
Hey Mixed Media Society member! I hope you're as excited as I am for today's NEW lesson from my Scottish bestie, Lucy Brydon!
Lucy is AMAZING at watercolors, gouache, and has recently gotten into alcohol markers as well inside the Celtic Collective! If you haven't done a lesson with Lucy before, you're in for such a treat! From her Scottish accent to her brilliant artistry and mad teaching skills - you're gonna love her!!
If you completed Lucy's previous watercolor skin tone lessons in light and medium skin tones inside the Mixed Media Society, you likely already have an idea of what to expect!
Lucy and I do TONS of things alike, but how we watercolor skin tones is completely opposite! I'm a grab and go girl who can't be bothered with mixing my own colors. I wanna dip right into my palette and drop it right onto my paper, and get the SAME color every time I do that :)
Lucy takes her time and mixes her own shades by combining watercolors, and varying the amount of water added. To me it's fussy, but if you look at her finished work - there are SO many layers of dimension in the gorgeous watercolor portraits she creates!
Speaking of portraits - let's get to today's dark skin tones lesson, shall we?! Isn't she stunning?!

While Lucy also chose to use the Prima Complexions Watercolor Set, she used it differently from me. You use whatever art supplies you have and love most. Here's what else Lucy used...
In addition to the lesson videos, Lucy created an 8-page PDF for you to print out or scroll through on screen while you work along with her.

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
