About Berto Martinez

Berto Martinez

Nostalgic Watercolours

Watercolour portraits and fashion illustration with an emotional depth.

The highly skilled work of Berto Matinez has been seen on the covers of magazines, on the walls of galleries, and in various other formats across the board. His realistic style is highly sought after for the sense of glamour and luxury it brings.

Berto Martínez is well known for his modern watercolour fashion illustrations and portraits, with clients such as Vogue, GQ, Nike, and Playboy. He has loved illustration since he was a child, being drawn to it as a resonant form of communication. In his work today, Berto likes to consider the relationship between text and figure, while also looking at the psychological layers of portraiture.


For Berto Martinez, the process begins with gathering as much reference material on the subject as possible. As an illustrator that works in realism, a wealth of resources with clear imagery is important but so is getting a sense of their general character.

When Berto has a clear idea of what the composition and structure will be, he lightly outlines the layout of the portrait in pencil.

Then begins the task of patiently building up layers in watercolour. With this kind of medium, each application adds a subtle amount of colour. But Berto works diligently, carefully placing each mark and controlling every bleed to create his elegant and realistic work.
