Watercolour Study PDF Tutorial – Realistic Round Rock / Pebble
An unusual study for a painting but you know me, always different! The pebble has some interesting bands of either calcite crystals or quartz which made for a much more interesting project to work on.
This study will show you how to build texture and form within smooth objects. You will need to look closely at the subject to pick out the subtle changes in tone in order to recreate them. I know that painting the little stones within the wood mouse painting proved tricky for some people. Hopefully this small study will give you further techniques you can use when painting stones with any subject.
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this round pebble in a matter of minutes. You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive! You will receive a 19-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.
