Navigation for those accessing my tutorials on Patreon

I first started teaching my realistic watercolour style online in 2017 and set up a channel on Patreon where I could host the projects.  Whilst this has worked extremely well the platform is notoriously difficult to navigate.  I have therefore decided to host the videos here on my personal website too and this now gives you various options for joining as a member.  The videos are the same in both places so the choice is yours.  Indeed, joining at a $16+ level on Patreon grants you access to my personal website too.

For anyone trying to find content on Patreon I hope this page will help.

Golden Helicon

The Golden Helicon butterfly has a variety of names, some call it the Tiger Longwing or the Hecale Longwing.  Others know it as the Hecale Longwing, the Golden Longwing or the Golden Heliconian.  I just know it as a beautiful butterfly and one that I very much enjoyed painting.  

I have classed this tutorial as an intermediate level as not only are you working with extremely fine lines but also a variety of white and black areas.  On top of this there is a need to create texture across the wings in order to make them look realistic.  This requires a lot of individual brush strokes rather than just filling in with a flat colour.
