Barn Owl


Learn to paint this lovely Barn Owl using wet in wet, washes, layers, dry brush and stippling.  I will guide you through how to apply a background and then how to reproduce the fine details which will bring your owl to life.  We will work with watercolour white and you will see how I use this medium in a very different way to most watercolourists.  All this alongside a range of other watercolour techniques.
