Fox and Rocks in Watercolor
Rocks and Fur Step by Step
Foxes are a popular subject for good reasons - they're fun to paint and people love them.
If you work step by step, even beginners can paint foxes, (although this lesson is geared towards intermediate level painters), with information that's easy to understand, practical, and effective! Start with a fox.
And then add rocks - step by step with granulating colors and salt. The rocky texture appears on your paper like magic. Add spattering and you'll have amazing, professional looking rocks.
In this lesson, you'll learn techniques for painting rocks and fur. A watercolor tool - The Incredible Nib - is demonstrated as one way to create fur edges, although it's great for any edges!
The original reference photo is from Pixabay, where you can find even more fox photos to practice these skills on. Guided practice is excellent practice, especially when you can quickly learn and master watercolor realism! (The fox painting below is also from a Pixabay photo.)
So, start now, and add these techniques to your painting knowledge today!
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!
