In this lesson you’ll learn how to create a realistic cardinal painting, with a unique background and color scheme. I’ll show you every step of the way in creating this wonderful painting.
Learn how to do a graphite transfer. I will show you the steps needed to take your sketchbook drawing and put it on canvas. This helps you get accurate proportion and placement on the canvas. It also allows you to fix mistakes and make adjustments before putting on layers of paint. I’ve also included a pattern you can transfer in case you struggle with drawing proportions!
This is a lesson you’ll want to add to your library, as you’ll learn a lot of new techniques for future paintings! Reference photos, reference sketch and transferable pattern included!
