Lesson 2 – Bonus Materials

Extra Bird References for Lesson 2 

Here are some extra bird references to have a go at. Remember to identify the lighter and darker sides of the plumage and build them up in two stages. The first wash is for the light side and the second wash is only painting the darker side. The final layer is for detail and the darkest darks. Don’t overdo things here – the brain can fill in details when they’re only suggested.
