Giraffe abstract watercolour painting

Tutor: Mili Jaydeep

Join artist Mili for this 10 minute abstract watercolour painting tutorial. Mili shows how to paint an abstract-style giraffe, starting with a rough pencil sketch, how to prepare the paint palette and mix colours, how to apply a base colour for the giraffe, then gradually adding colour to create depth and dark lines for detail. Allow time for paint to dry and to pause the video from drawing and painting.

Video time: 10 minutes (allow additional time for paint to dry and to pause the video while you draw and paint)
