Loose and lively

Part 2 Liz Chaderton discusses a variety of techniques and approaches to painting bird and animal textures in watercolour

Watercolour

Time to Reflect , watercolour, 1734⁄ x1334⁄ in. (45x35cm). My avocet needed somewhere to wade so I used Clingfilm to create a few ripples.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Paint textures with salt and Clingfilm

Learn classic watercolour techniques

Practise brush control

Last month we considered what painting loose really means – and what it doesn’t. Now it is time to stop reading and to pick up your brushes. By practising some of the following exercises, not only will you create lovely paintings, you will learn invaluable lessons. Become your own tutor and analyse everything you do. If you are happy with the outcome, ask yourself why and how could you make it even better. If something went wrong, identify at what stage, what you can do to avoid doing it again and focus on the positive – what went right and why? Your learning will accelerate.
