How to Paint White Birds in Watercolour – Mute Swan PDF Lesson
Learn how to paint this Swan and you will be guided step by step through a range of watercolour techniques.  These will include applying a background wash that looks like real water.  We will also work on building the correct colour foundation layers for the bird.  Indeed these are essential for the finished result to look realistic. The white feathers are not just white and it is the under layers that bring out the actual colours.  We will of course paint the amazing beak in some really vivid colours and finish it all off with the sparkly water droplets.  All this alongside a range of watercolour techniques and styles.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Swan in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 39 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.
