September Watercolour Tutorial - An American Bald Eagle!
 
This is such a majestic bird to paint especially working with both white and dark feathers, an excellent challenge to have a go at!

White and dark's such as black is always a challenging painting project to work on, let me show you my way of approaching this, which is not as scary as it sounds. 

We will start with drawing out, adding that faded out background effect, then completing this stage by ensuring all the drawing is in place for the washes and details we are about to paint!

Remember:   If you are happy with the painting without adding the white paint and don't wish to continue, sign it and frame it, you can take it as far as YOU want to go, it's YOUR painting after all. :-)
