Realistic Watercolor Chipmunk Tutorial – Downloadable PDF Lesson

Chipmunks belong to the squirrel family of animals but live on the ground instead of in trees.  They are about the size of a teacup and are very distinctive with their stripy fur, shiny eyes and bushy tails.  They love to burrow, and they will cache food in their deep and complex burrows to see them through the winter months.  They do hibernate, but wake up to feed from their food store as they do not lay down fat, unlike other hibernating animals.

I have really broken this project down into the tiniest of steps.  All levels of ability should be able to work through each stage.  Just remember to keep a very close eye on the reference photo and take your time.  You will need a very fine tip to your brush for some detail, I would suggest practising on scrap paper first.  Not only does this take excess paint off the brush but each time it reminds you about just how light your touch needs to be.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Chipmunk in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 40-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.
