Ladybird, ladybird fly away home – go on, give it a go, this little ladybird would look great in your home!


Detailed Wildlife Painting Tutorial – Watercolour Ladybird
Learn to paint this Ladybird and you will be guided through a wide range of  watercolour techniques.  These will include creating a wet in wet background and applying a graduated wash.  We will also work on building layers of bright red without them becoming ‘muddied’ by the black spots.  In addition we will work with watercolour white to make the wing cases shine and the bud look real.  All this alongside a variety of extra watercolour tips and tricks.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Ladybird in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 20 page PDF document.  Set out in the same way as the tutorials I write for magazines.  However, you get lots more large photos of the different stages.

Work at your own speed

Downloadable lessons enable you to work at your own speed.  Firstly you can dip in and out of the content.  Secondly you can spend time studying the fine details and practise the various techniques as often as you like. 

I really like to focus on the watercolour techniques needed to create a realistic painting.  Likewise I love sharing this style of painting through my tutorials and hope I inspire others to create detailed wildlife portraits too.
