HERON TUTORIAL

ADVANCED

Draw this Heron with me in real-time where I show you step-by-step exactly what to do to achieve a detailed, realistic drawing. Some key techniques I'll teach you are how to draw feathers, drawing large-scale and adding elements of water.

PAPER

I use Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper for this tutorial, which is quite a grainy, textured paper however I no longer recommend this paper. Alternatively, I recommend using the Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Vellum as it's perfect for students and beginners.
