Go on, give it a go, this Red Squirrel is a lovely challenge with those bright colours and bushy tail!


Watercolour Wildlife Painting Tutorial by Paul Hopkinson
This PDF tutorial will teach you how to paint a realistic Red Squirrel.  During the lesson you will be guided through a range of watercolour techniques.  These will include working with wet in wet washes to create a soft, mottled, faded out background.  In addition we will cover how to mix and use the right shade of paint to create shape and form.  We will be working in layers both in our washes and during the adding of detail.  Finally I will show you how to bring your painting to life with white paint.  All this alongside a variety of other watercolour tips and tricks.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Squirrel in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 25 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.
