Painting the color red can be frustrating!
Learn how to avoid the pit falls of painting red with watercolors while also watching how to paint a Cardinal.
Here is a list of the materials I used to make this Cardinal painting:
- I paint on 300 lb Arches Hot Press watercolor paper.
- All the paints I use are Winsor & Newton watercolors.
- Here are the colors: Alizarin Crimson, Indigo, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Red Light, Payne’s Grey, Lamp Black, and Sepia.
- All the brushes I used to make this painting were round brushes between the sizes of 0-3.
This 5″x7″ watercolor painting is part of my Blue Jay Tree Collection, which is made up of 6 separate bird paintings.
If you would like to see how I made this collection check out the blog post: How I Made my Blue Jay Tree Collection.
I would also love to hear about any questions you may have on my painting process:)
