To paint eucalyptus leaves in watercolour.
The equipment needed for botanical watercolour painting.
Different watercolour techniques to build up your painting.
How to fix mistakes on your painting.
How to complete a detailed painting of your own.
I teach botanical and insect illustration and through this experience I’ve learnt the problems that you might come up against when you first start out with watercolour. I will walk you through the whole process from beginning to end. We’ll cover basic equipment required, setting up your specimen, sketching, tonal study, transferring the image to your watercolour paper, and then the real fun begins. We’ll go through building up your painting from wet in wet, all the way to dry brush to add those final details at the end. Along the way I’ll include lots of tips and techniques to help you learn to paint Eucalyptus leaves, and these techniques can be applied to other subjects.
