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.

Golden Eagle

The stunning Golden Eagle is the top predator in Scotland, where it may be seen soaring and catching thermals as it looks for prey.  Its wingspan can be more than 2 metres, so it is a formidable hunter of rabbits and mountain hares, and it will also take larger prey like foxes.  

This is a shorter project, as we focus on just the head and neck of the bird.  That said, there are quite a few techniques involved, and I’ve therefore classed it as a project that is of a more intermediate level.  However, if you really want to paint it, just pick up that brush and have a go.
