Paint Realistic Watercolour Leaves – PDF Tutorial on a Winter Beech Leaf
The Beech is quite a common tree in the British countryside, we have an amazing tree just outside our village, if you want to go for a really short walk, to the Beech Tree and back is ideal.  It is lovely to see the tree through all the different seasons as the leaves slowly change and do their thing.  Unlike most deciduous trees the leaves of the beech often remain on the tree throughout the winter months.  This is particularly obvious where the trees are growing as part of a hedge.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting the winter beech leaf in a matter of minutes.  You don’t even need to wait for the post to arrive!  You will receive a 23-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.

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.
