Watercolor bird tutorial [loose style]

If you’ve ever wondered how to paint birds in loose watercolor, you’re in for a treat. In this fun mini class my friend, artist Jennifer Rose, shows you how to paint a cute and easy watercolor bird in her loose style.

The bird Jennifer shows you how to paint in this class is a sweet little bluetit. If you’re not familiar with bluetits, they’re brightly coloured and full of charm. Using a combination of wet-on-dry and wet in wet watercolor techniques, Jennifer will guide you through the process of using layers of paint to build up colour and create lots of texture and atmosphere.

Watch the video to see how to make this beautiful and easy bird painting.

If you enjoyed this watercolor bird class, check out the other loose watercolour animal mini classes from Jennifer Rose. You’ll find a loose butterfly, a racing hare and some pretty koi carp fish with a watery background.

If working in the realistic style is more your thing, on the blog you can also find watercolor bird mini classes in my realistic style, for example this bright blue kingfisher.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this class. Please leave Jennifer and I a comment to let us know if so!
