Easy Watercolor Figure Painting – Reflection

Want to learn some easy watercolor figure painting? Here’s something a little different to paint. It’s a scene of a group of monks in Myanmar. I thought this interesting scene would be a great opportunity to learn how to paint some loose figures in watercolor.

I painted the figures first with a little pyrrol orange and hansa yellow mixed together. A quick way to get in the folds of the fabric is to drop in some darker pigment while the previous layer is still wet. In this case, I added some pyrrol orange mixed with a neutral tint.

The background of the photograph is relatively dark and you can use that to cut around the figures to create negative shapes for the figures. I’ve also done that for some of the objects in the background.
