About: I am happy to share some of my secrets of how to paint feathers,birds or some cooking recipes. I am an artist that creates Colorful art for everyone to enjoy and bring into their home. Go check out my prints...

This post is sequel of the previous tutorial on my blog “How to paint birds in watercolor” Part I

In this tutorial you will learn how to draw chickadees!

Step 1: Find a Model!

It`s best to have a model, whether it`s a real bird on your window or just a photo.

Step 2: Start With a Sketch

Sketch the bird with a pencil. At this point you can make changes so don`t be afraid to use the rubber! It`s important to have fine lines of your bird.

Step 3: Apply the Paint

I started with the cup first. You can have your own composition. You might want to draw only a bird, or a bird on a branch. Of course you can start with applying paint on the bird. It`s up to you!

Step 4: Colour the Chickadee

Apply the main colours of the bird first.

Step 5: Get Into Detail Once You Have Applied the Colors of the Bird

Here are the steps of painting the bird.

Step 6: Scan Your Painting and Adjust the Levels on Photoshop

Step 7: Use Your Unique Design on All Kinds of Items!

Once your design is finished you can have it printed on different items. If you want to have my design on a mug,T-shirt, phone case, check out my shop from here.

Thank you for reading my tutorial. More photos and insights you can see in my blog post.

Colorfully yours,

Simone
