How to Paint Princess Jasmine With Watercolors
Do You Like Princess Jasmine?
I am very excited about the new live-action version of Aladdin. The 1993 Disney animation was one of my childhood favorite movies, and I always admired the brave and beautiful Princess Jasmine.
What You'll Need
- Pencils for sketching
- A3 11/16 inch watercolor paper, thickness 300 lbs (the label I mostly use is Seawhite & Brighton)
- Two jars of water
- Windsor and Newton watercolors
- Watercolor paint brushes size 3-6
1. Make the Sketch
First, I did the initial sketch. I used the scene where Jasmine enters the marketplace as a reference.
2. Add the Background Color
Paint the background with burned umber. I mixed the color myself using cadmium yellow, sinoper red, and a little bit of Prussian blue.
Watercolor Painting Tip
When you paint with watercolors, it is recommended to start with the lighter colors and then move on to the darker ones.
3. Mix the Skin Color
Jasmine has a beautiful olive-colored skin complexion. Unfortunately, my camera didnt manage to capture it very well. To match it, I mixed yellow, red, brown, and white. Because Jasmine is an animated character, I can´t play too much with the shadows of the skin. Instead, I painted the skin to look smooth like in the animation. Then, I painted her beautiful dark-brown eyes.
4. Work on the Veil and Earrings
Her veil is ochre yellow. To make the color, mix browns and different shades of yellow together.
To paint the golden earrings, use the same ochre color but just add hints of orange and red to it.
5. Paint the Lips, Hair and Makeup
Paint her lips with sinoper red, and use a mixture of black and dark brown for her hair and makeup. To make the skin look softer, use a lighter shade of brown to paint the lines.
