How to Paint Watercolour Leaves made Easy – Spring Beech Leaf PDF
It always lifts our spirits in the spring when we start to see the first beech leaves unfurling.  All of a sudden the brown hedges of winter become a vivid lime green colour and you know that summer is not far away.  The painting really shows the fine hairs on the edges and underside of the leaves, these are gradually lost as the leaf ages.

Such an array of colours used in this painting, the biggest palette I have had for a long time.  I have classed this as an intermediate project as we are working with such vibrant, translucent colours and applying a lot of very fine detail.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting the spring beech leaf 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.  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.
