Realistic Bird Painting Tutorial – Tree Swallow Watercolor PDF Tutorial
Tree Swallows are a familiar bird across North America, they nest in tree cavities but also take readily to nest boxes. Indeed, there is a good chance you will be successful in getting a bird to take up residence in a bird box. Try putting one up in your garden or yard if you live in their breeding range. After all, who could resist the sight of baby swallows popping their head out of their bird box – too cute for words!
The tutorial takes you step-by-step through the painting of the first bird. You will then use the knowledge and skills that you have learnt and gained to paint the other two. Alternatively, you can simply return to the start of the instructions and follow them through for each chick. We then complete the tutorial by painting in a suggestion of a nest hole in some old wood. Again, if you prefer you can simply paint in some plain wood as if they were in a bird box.
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting these cute little Tree Swallow chicks in a matter of minutes. Indeed, there’s no need to even wait for the post to arrive. You will receive a 27-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.
