Painting watercolour dragonflies – part two

Part two of the “how to paint dragonflies and a narrowboat” series is now on YouTube.

This week, I show you how to paint the details of the dragonfly using watercolour and a fine brush. You could also do the same in pen.

To start this stage, it is very important that your paper is completely dry.

Painting a canvas plaque of a narrowboat with a cat and dog

Hi guys, in this video I’m going to show you how to make this little plaque.

I usually pick up these small canvas plaques from a hobby shop or order them online. I am using watercolour paint.

Today’s finished plaque is of a cat and dog sitting on the bow of a narrowboat.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

Painting a narrowboat and some dragonflies – Part One

For this, you are going to need your watercolor paint and perhaps and tape to hold things in place. On the boat it gets quite wet so a hairdryer comes in handy too.

I’m going to use my finer paint brushes and also quite a large paintbrush to do the background. I also have my collapsable water container.

If you have any comments or questions about the video, please let me know. Part 2 will be posted next week.
