Watercolour Wren tutorial

I am really excited to be sharing this tutorial with you, it will take you through the process of how I create my bird illustrations, from initial sketch to painting & creating the background. I hope you enjoy!


Included with the tutorial & available to download

  • Reference photo of the Wren
  • Watercolour texture paper – procreate file

Links to items used in the demo:

Brushes: Aqua Real – Watercolour brushes by Liza Glanz, you can purchase them here on the designcutz.com website. You can alternatively use Procreates pre-installed brushes.

Screen Protector: I use a screen protector that feels like paper to draw on & provides better control when sketching, it also protects the screen from scratches. The matt surface makes it good to use outdoors reducing the glare of the sun. The brand I use is Paperlike but there are many others very similar to buy on the market. The screen protector is not is not a requirement to complete this course.
