What I’m Watching on YouTube : Painting People + Animals with Hazel Soan

Hazel Sloan – Painting People – Figures on YouTube

I’m about half way through an hour and a half brand new free YouTube video with watercolor artist Hazel Sloan, and am finding myself needing to watch it in small segments, it is that chock full of goodies to pickup, at least on my part, lol!

It’s interesting how she’s altered the title since it was released by striking through “People” and inserting “Figures.” It definitely appears to be a more appropriate titling, as the gist is capturing small representations of people (tiny up to 4 or so inches).

The rendering of such convincing movements and poses is even more impressive when she explains the process and speed this can happen. I won’t spoil the video, other than saying it was all new to me! 😊

Included in the brush and sequencing and observation work (and this is as I mentioned at the top, my only being about half way through the full video), are – again for me – important tidbits re differing watercolor pigment transparencies, spacings between some colors, and (hinted at) when a sketch begins to become a story.

Yeah, good stuff!

Hope you get to take a look. I know I’m glad I got an alert to the video just being up – https://youtu.be/BJhqHJY8iCs .

Below are links to my reviews of both one of Hazel’s watercolor books (flowers), and another free watercolor video though this time on Prime Video

And my review of Hazel’s watercolor video on Amazon Prime. The video is superb. It’s what decided me to feel I could give watercolors a try ❤️
