Of all the paintings I sell, my bird paintings are the most popular and one of the most popular bird paintings I sell are my Galahs. Lots of people have asked me to demonstrate how I paint a Galah so in this class I'll show you how. Watch over my shoulder as I walk you step by step through my entire painting process. I've included a watercolour technique video in this class to give you a closer look at the different techniques I use to paint the Galah.
Some of the techniques you will learn in this class:
- How to soften edges
- How to paint soft edges
- How to paint hard edges
- Painting feathers negatively
- Dropping in colour
- Painting wet on dry
- Painting wet on wet
- How to add watercolour blooms to create texture
- Lifting colour
- Painting water onto paper- how wet is it?
- Putting paint on the palette
I recommend this class for intermediate painters but beginners will also find it useful.
