Join me for this ever popular kingfisher painting in acrylics on canvas


Watch and learn as the entire painting develops with instruction along the way. Prepapre for the class by painting a burnt Sienna wash on your canvas and sketch your bird with a basic contour line drawing. We will then  progressively add layers of acrylic paint to develop rich colors and textures.

Perfect for all levels, just grab a set of paints a brush and a small canvas, or canvas paper.
