    Will Martinez: Traditional Work . Figures, Portraits, and Landscapes

    I only work digitally professionally, it's just a necessity. In order to keep up my skill and sanity I do my personal work (art training) traditionally. I use black Prismacolor pencil to sketch and watercolor and white gouache to paint mostly. I usually paint or draw figures twice a week so i will be updating this frequently!

    Here a few from this past year.

    very nice work , very pro

    the cowdoy is indeed well done !

    do u use gouache without diluting it with water to make white spot ? or is part of the painting ?

    Thank you very much for the compliment Zou and the question! I like to plan ahead and try to leave the lightest light the white of the paper, like a traditional watercolorist. Sometimes things don't go as planned and I have to go back in and bring up the whites with gouache. I will typically dilute the white and layer it to get the value I want. Sometimes, if i need a bright bright highlight i will use straight white from the tube. I usually find though that this is to light for a painting and usually use my finger to smudge it. This also allows some of the color underneath to show through and gives the white I put down a temperature which helps harmonize it with the rest of the painting.

    I attached this for your reference
