Step 1: Copy the outline

Use your pencil to copy the line art onto your watercolour paper. Follow the tutorial and start adding colour!

Step 2: Add colour

Continue to build up colour and add some detail in layers. Be patient... it can take time.

Step 3: Build up layers

Achieve a vibrant colour effect by building layer after layer and adding details like shadow, feather texture and depth as you go.

Step 4: Add detail

Take a step back from your painting. This will help you work out if your piece needs more colour, detail, texture or balance. Keep adding paint until you're happy with the end result!
