Painted Lady Butterfly – Watercolour Lesson
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this stunning butterfly in a matter of minutes! You will receive a 25 page PDF document which is set out in the same way as the tutorials I write for magazines, but you get lots more whole page photos of the different stages.
Have a go at the Painted Lady tutorial and then perhaps use the techniques to paint your own favourite species of butterfly
Downloadable lessons enable you to work at your own speed, you can dip in and out of the content, you can spend time studying the fine details and practise the various techniques as often as you like.
Get yourself ready…….you will need the following:
Brushes: Sizes 00, 1, 5 & 12 & a crushed, split brush (not necessary).
Paper: Bockingford NOT cold pressed, medium texture, (250mm x 210mm or 8.25” x 9.75”).
