Watercolour Wren Painting Lesson – Detailed Superb Fairy Wren PDF
The male Superb Fairy Wren is a splendid bird with his almost velvet like blue and black plumage. Juvenile males and females are by contrast mostly brown. The species is found in eastern/ south-eastern Australia and also in Tasmania. They are rather a sociable bird and will often form small groups and indeed members of the group often help with feeding the young.
This project has its challenges so would be appropriate for someone with a little knowledge and experience. We are working with lots of different colours and also feather structures within this little bird. That’s quite different to many birds we paint and requires a careful, methodical approach to the whole piece. I found it easier to focus on the distinct sections and finish each one before moving on to the next.
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Superb Fairy Wren in a matter of minutes. You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive! You will receive a 44-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.
