Paintbox 2 - How to paint people, birds and animals in watercolour

Details: In this one hour video Noel Garner from Cambridge Art Academy introduces you to the basics of painting people, birds and animals. Focusing on watercolour - but including sketching and watercolour pencils - this content-packed video explains the essentials with lots of practical demonstrations.

Each of the subjects included in this video would merit extensive teaching materials in their own right. But the intention of this video is to open up the broad subject of painting living things for your own exploration.

It's much more than a survey of subjects and methods though; you will be amazed at how many questions about painting animals and birds are answered here, together with lots of tips and ideas about how to get started. Here are some questions you can expect to get help with, and hands-on demonstrations for:
  • How can I draw people in public without them noticing or being offended?
  • How can I paint a bird in real life since they move so fast?
  • Where's a good place to see animals in motion, but where I can sketch or paint them too?
  • When painting portraits from a live subject, is there a favoured kind of person or age group?
  • How should I paint people in groups?
  • Would watercolour pencils be a way of combining the essence of sketching as well as painting? 
..... and much more.

Don't miss out on this video. At just £7.95 (plus VAT) for over an hour of concentrated, totally original filming, this is incredible value.

Here's a three minute sample from the video:
