This tutorial is perfect for absolute beginners. In fact, when I was an art teacher, the first part is what I showed my beginning students (8th grade or older) on the second day of school. I like to think that this lesson convinced them that maybe they could actually draw, and maybe art was sort of fun. The second part—where I guided them step-by-step through a realistic mouth—came a few days later, and by that time they were hooked.
And I hope you'll be hooked as well!
You've got to learn how to draw before you can paint (at least that's been my experience), so hopefully this will give you some confidence. Please let me know if you'd like to see more drawing tutorials along with the watercolors.
