Project Description

Your project for this class is to paint a Sun Conure in watercolor. You can use the line drawing that I have provided to trace onto your watercolor paper or you can paint a different parrot.

I am eager to see your results so please upload scans or photos of your Sun Conures/parrots on the 'All Projects' page.

The downloadable files for this class can only be accessed when you sign into Skillshare through the internet. If you are using the Skillshare app you won't be able to see them to download.

I have recently started a private group on Facebook for my online students. There you can share your paintings, ask questions, answer questions and share any useful information you have about painting in watercolour. Here is the link: Louise De Masi's Watercolour Addicts.

Below are some examples of the parrots that I have painted.
