Just in time for Autumn, when these beautiful birds start to appear here in the UK.
This tutorial is largely focused on how we can tackle markings on birds and animals in a way that is true to their character but without getting overly fussy and complicated. As always there are a few little tricks, which not only help to integrate any markings naturally, but also accentuate the feeling of form and light on our subject.
We also talk a little about colour schemes and finding the underlying colours which create the painting, and then choosing a few little extra accents to make it pop.
Finally, what to do with backgrounds? It is all about finding that balance between interest and simplicity, abstract and literal.
I hope you enjoy this one. Happy paining!
