Step by Step to Detailed Watercolour – Painting Birds
In this Goldcrest tutorial you will be guided through the drawing out stage and how to work wet in wet.  This will include blending of the colours to create shape and form.  I will also show you how to use acrylic white for those much-needed highlights.  Finally, we will work through adding some fir branches to your paintings.  All this alongside a range of other watercolour techniques.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Goldcrest in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 15-page PDF document.  Set out in the same way as the tutorials I write for magazines.  However, you get more large photos of the different stages.

This tutorial was originally published in the Leisure Painter magazine now you have a second chance to read and paint it!

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.
