Learn how to paint this delightful Red Squirrel in watercolour by following my relaxed way of teaching. I will show you step by step from the drawing out stage through to the final brush strokes, guiding you through various techniques along the way. The techniques and process We will be using transfer paper, wet in wet technique, creating a vignette edging, applying masking fluid, mixing the correct paint consistencies, painting a mottled background, forming a realistic eye, building up washes for the body foundation layers, painting detailed fur and finally painting textured wood. So you have a lot to learn with this video and great for trying out various techniques along the way. Enjoy this painting, I know I did! Paul :-)
