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.
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.
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.
