Blue Heron – An online acrylic painting lesson
If you prefer a DVD version please click HERE
In this lesson I will show you how to paint a Great Blue Heron. We begin with a simple sketch and toning the canvas. From there I will take you through each brush stroke as we create this majestic bird. I will show you how to layer the acrylic paint to create light, depth and texture. This lesson is great because it will show you how to create a painting with a black backdrop and realistic subject matter.
Colors used: Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Ultramarine Blue, Naples Yellow, Zinc White, Titanium White, Brilliant Blue
All brushes used are from my Tim Gagnon Studio brush set made by Rosemary Brush Co. Click here for more info on the brushes.
