Project Description

Decorated birds in watercolor and gouache

Paint a decorated bird in either watercolor or gouache (or both!) by using the layer technique that I show in the class, and add dots, lines or similar decoration. Make sure you use opaque paint if you want to add highlights on top of darker areas. I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful birds!
