PDF Tutorial on Painting a Butterfly in Watercolour
Learn to paint this lovely Painted Lady Butterfly using masking fluid, layers, wet in wet, washes, stippling and dry brush.  We will start by applying a background and will then move on to the exquisite detail and muted colours within the wings.   I will guide you through each step to ensure that you understand how all the elements fit together in order to produce this finished painting.  All this alongside a range of other watercolour techniques.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 25 page PDF document.  This is 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.
