Watercolour rooster – online tuition

Tuition contents:

30 minute online video

What you will learn:

With this 30 minute video, you’ll see me using a riot of colour, a water spray and a way of working around the painting which will help you explore lots of qualities of watercolour.

Nothing more than a sense of adventure is required to have a go at painting in this way!  Don’t worry if you don’t have my colours, have a play with the ones in your palette.


Artist quality pigments:
Alizarin Crimson,  Cadmium Red, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Permanent Mauve, Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Turquoise, Lemon yellow (a little Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Yellow).

Paper:  37cm x 37cm Saunders Waterford, 300gsm NOT

Brushes:  Round no.4, rigger brush and old toothbrush!

Small hand-size spray bottle.  These are available from most chemists and are normally not more than £1.  They give a fine spray, ideal for this size of work.  A roll of kitchen towel is great to mop up excess water!

Below is the resource image.  Once you’ve got the idea, let your imagination run riot and paint a rooster of your choosing!
