What you will learn:

Would you like to paint these beautiful garden birds in a loose way in watercolour?  And have you ever looked at a black subject and reached straight away for pigments Paynes Grey or Ivory Black to try and capture your subject?  Well, how about following my online video to help you paint these cheeky chaps in a loose way,  using every colour but black?


These are the colours I have used (mainly Daler Rowney).  Please don’t worry if you haven’t got these, it is worth experimenting with the colours in your palette.

Ultramarine Blue

Cadmium Orange
Permanent Yellow deep (ShinHan professional watercolour transparent)
