Paint a decorated bird in watercolor and gouache – New class on folk art illustration!
I’m happy to announce my latest Skillshare class Folk Art Illustration: Paint a decorated bird in watercolor & gouache! We’re going to paint some lovely decorated birds together, so this class is perfect for getting into the spring/summer vibes.
In the class, I’m going to show you how to paint birds in a decorative folk art style. We’re going to look at two different techniques and paint colorful birds first in watercolor and then in gouache. You’ll only need a few watercolors and optionally a few gouache paints.
As always, I show a few examples of my own, then talk you through my process. If you’re new to painting with watercolor and gouache, this class is great for you!
Well take a look at how to:
- work with the two different mediums
- work in layers
- blend your paints together
- mix watercolors with gouache paints
- add highlights with white paint.
I’ll be showing two different exercises to follow along and in the end you’ll have a lovely decorated bird in your hands. I love birds as a subject matter - they’re fairly easy to draw and paint, and they are so colorful and cheerful!
I hope you’ll join me in this class about painting birds in watercolor and gouache.
