Learn how to paint watercolor pet portraits with confidence alongside award-winning artist Deb Watson. Start class with tips for choosing a reference photo, selecting a composition and creating value sketches to establish your furry friend's form. Next, you'll easily transfer the main shapes of your pet portrait with graphite paper. Prep your palette as Deb helps you select harmonious colors, mix all the variations you need and apply your first beautiful wash. Then, create contour lines to define any dog's fur, and use directional strokes to mimic any cat's coat. Bring your work to life as Deb guides you through painting realistic pet eyes, noses, ears and more. Plus, find out how different backgrounds can add instant dimension to your work.
