Embrace the blues – online tuition

I created this online tuition with the intention of embracing a large and lovely palette of blues and what better subject than a peacock to do this!

In this 25 minute online video I hope that you will enjoy learning:

How to understand the information printed on watercolour tubes and qualities of the pigments. This might help should you wish to add some to your existing colours.

Painting with a variety of blues and other colours in both a wet-in-wet style and then picking out the detail, wet on dry.

Help to create feathery textures with clingfilm and salt.

Then there is a link to my website blog where there are written instructions on how I developed the ideas demonstrated in the video to paint a larger peacock piece.

Brushes 2,10 and a rigger.

Fine table salt and clingfilm for added effect!
