In this lesson I’ll take you through each step in creating this window to the outdoors. We’ll create a brilliant blue sky with puffy clouds, and then continue on draw out our robin and branch with pencil before diving into layers of paint.
I’ll show you how to create every step of the robin, from the individual feathers on the chest, to the sleek shine on the beak. There are a lot of close up angles to show exactly how I apply the paint.
Come paint with me and create a beautiful painting!
