  • How to paint a piece of watercolor art. Flamingo Watercolor Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start with a clean wet brush and paint the shape shown here. Then using a vibrant pink, starting on the right, dab on your paint and watch it bleed in to the water areas. Keep adding the pink paint on the water until you have a nicely blended area. Keep the area to the right, where the neck will be, as the darkest pink, as this will be a shaded area.

    Once the body area of the flamingo is dry, you can paint the neck and head. Using the same wet on wet technique, blend the pink paint down from the head to the bottom of the neck. Try to add darker areas on the edges and keep the middle of the neck lighter, to give them impression of it being curved. You can dab off areas of paint with a tissue or kitchen paper if your paint gets a bit dark.

    Once the neck is dry, using a light pink and white, paint over the whole of the beak. Once that is dry, you can then use a black paint to paint on the beak detail and the eye!
