Workshop: Textured Peacock with Liz Chadderton

Join watercolour artist Liz Chaderton for this educational and rewarding class to create a 'Textured peacock'. A 2-3 hour workshop webinar, broadcast live from England on 6th July 2021. Visit our video library to purchase or visit Liz's shop here.


See reference and recommended materials below:

In this delightful workshop, Liz will show you how to prepare a fascinating surface to work on and then paint a vibrant peacock, which will exploit its properties to the full.

Though we will be using the surface to paint a bird, it is an excellent paper to paint landscape upon and with further preparation can be a superb surface for pen work. No doubt we will touch on this in the workshop!

So expect to come away with lots of new ideas. If you want to enhance your bird with stencilling, Liz will show you how. Please note the peacock show is for illustration and we will not be adding in the collage elements to our painting.
