Bluebird in Watercolor
Bird and Background for Beginners
Bluebirds and Apple Blossoms - Beginner Watercolor Lesson
Paint the background wet on wet, then the leaves and the branch.
The flowers can have some shading or stay white.
Last, paint the bluebird and tweak your values.
This lesson uses a limited palette of red, yellow and blue but feel free to use your own favorite colors.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
