This tutorial takes you step by step through a range of watercolour techniques.  These include how to build your colours from dark to light for some sections of the bird.  In addition we will be using colours over the top of watercolour white and underneath it.  A very upside down painting – a bit like that Goldfinch above!  All this alongside a range of watercolour techniques and styles.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Blue Tit in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 29 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.
