Kingfisher on a Stump

Use Watercolour to Paint Realistic Birds, Detailed Kingfisher PDF Tutorial
Learn to paint this Kingfisher in watercolour with my PDF tutorial.  You will learn a range of watercolour techniques and will be given guidance on the whole process.   We will start by painting a soft mottled background to give the bird a setting.  We will learn how to use masking fluid to preserve the white of the paper and will work with vibrant colours.  One of the last stages will be mapping out the details and painting the old wood and bark.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Kingfisher in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 22-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.

This was indeed a tutorial which first appeared in Leisure Painter.  Here is another chance to give it a go!

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.
