How to Paint Realistic Wildlife in Watercolour – Wood Mouse Lesson
This PDF tutorial will teach you a variety of watercolour techniques and skills. These will include painting bright, shiny eyes with ‘black’ paint. We will also work through applying foundation washes which will later give your mouse shape and form. You will learn to build layers of detail to give the mouse realism. Finally, we will add in not only the wood, but the wall and the stones too. All this alongside a range of other watercolour tips and techniques.
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Wood Mouse in a matter of minutes. You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive! You will receive a 26-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.

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.
