Project Description

A landscape with birds

The  lesson is an easy landscape with birds.   You learn basic skills like a multicolour wash and drybrushing birds. Be sure you watch my video on 'Materials' for watercolour and in particular the video on making skinny lines before you paint the birds.  Don't worry if your scene is not exactly like mine.  No watercolour is ever the same. That is what is wonderful about watercolour.  The variations are great. This is also a favorite of my students and they succees with this project every time.  Upload your version for everyone to see.
