Watercolour Tutorial for Beginners, Painting a Bird – Marsh Tit
Whilst you learn to paint this Marsh Tit you will be guided through a variety of watercolour techniques. These will include how to work with dark and light colours and keep them fresh. We will also look at using acrylic white paint for the highlights. Although, you could also use gouache or opaque watercolour white for this. In addition, I love to paint eyes and I will show you how to paint a detailed, realistic, sparkly eye. All this alongside a range of other watercolour techniques.
This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Marsh Tit in a matter of minutes. You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive! You will receive an 11-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. Marsh Tits are closely related and look very similar to Chickadees. You could use the techniques in this tutorial to paint a Chickadee if you would prefer.
This was the first of my tutorials ever to be published in the Leisure Painter magazine now you have a second chance to read and paint it!

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.
