Great Crested Grebe WIP Stage 1

Pin It
I recently got some great Truelight full-spectrum lights to be able to work in the evenings so hopefully updates will be more frequent from now on.
Currently I'm working on 2 paintings, this one of a great crested grebe which will be done in watercolours and another one of a grey heron in acrylics.
Watercolours are quite new for me so hopefully it will work out.
I'm used to working from a middle value or dark value towards the light and with watercolours you have to think the other way around. Ah well, we'll see.

Here is stage 1.
