In this webinar, you will paint a single Keel Billed toucan on an abstract background. For the background, you can use any stencil you have. Liz chose one that reminded her of the block work she saw in the ancient ruins spread across Central America although on the day she may be inspired by a different thought and different stencil! If you are unable to find a stencil (these are widely available in art and crafts shops and online), then you can paint in an abstract pattern on the background and Liz will discuss options for lifting during the session. For a more opaque finish, you could stencil using gouache rather than watercolour.

During this live session you will learn:

  • How to use stencils in a positive and negative manner
  • The joy of a patterned background
  • Working wet in wet and wet on dry
  • Edges - hard and soft and how to soften edges
  • Colour mixing
