How to Paint a Realistic Owl in Watercolour

Tawny Owls are stunning birds, not one that we ever expected to see in our garden but as this video* shows, they can literally turn up anywhere!

Paint a realistic owl in watercolour alongside Paul Hopkinson

Would you like to learn how to paint a realistic owl in watercolour in easy to follow stages?  Tawny Owls are beautiful birds of British woodlands.  Whilst essentially a brown bird I can assure you that in this painting you will be working with many different colours including red, blue, yellow and green!  The video is filmed in real time and I show you every stage of the painting with lots of guidance along the way.  I talk you through step by step as I paint the project myself.  Painting a wildlife subject so that it looks realistic is all about building layers, depth and shape.  You will learn how to do this and so much more.
Take a look at the video it will give you an idea of how the painting builds up and starts to come to life.  In addition it will give you a flavour of my teaching style, at least I hope it does!

Should you have enjoyed watching this video, do leave me a comment I would really like to know what you think and if you want to see some more – check out this page!

The full tutorial is now available on my Patreon channel.  I look forward to working with you there and seeing how you paint a realistic owl in watercolour.

As always, remember to keep them brushes wet!
