A group of Goldfinch is known as a 'charm', these are certainly charming little birds to paint.  With their cute look and very colourful feathers it's a painting worth giving a go. I will guide you through mixing the correct colours; the bright reds for the face, the vivid yellow of the wings and the beautiful warm browns of the chest.  Getting the correct consistency of paint also plays a big part in this painting.  I will show you how I achieve this. You will learn to work with wet in wet washes to create shape and form.  I will also teach you my technique of layering details, painting realistic legs and also feet.  Finally, you will learn to use watercolour white paint and how to paint a branch full of texture and curves! So come and join me and let's paint this colourful Goldfinch together and let's get those brushes wet! Paul :-)
