Hi friends! Today we are going to paint a peahen!

I am using Lukas Berlin Water mixable oils but you can use traditional oils, pastels, gouache or acrylics with slow drying medium to paint along! We are going to be sketching and painting together in this real-time class with lots of beginner tips and tricks! Feel free to pause the video as you master a technique, this is not a race, take as much time and you need and most importantly, have fun!

Video!

This was so enjoyable to paint. I want to thank you for encouraging me to keep my tutorials in real-time. I am so happy that you want to spend the time to learn and not just have the instant gratification of watching a painting that took an hour be boiled down to 5 minutes which seems to be the trend on YouTube. You guys are the best! Happy crafting!

  18. Oh Lindsay, I am loving all your real time videos. I have purchased many of the watercolor supplies and supplies in general because I can actually see how they work in your videos. I have taken many painting classes where I live and I get more from watching you than most of these classes I spent big bucks on. My first love is portraiture. Could you do a portraiture video sometime? I have mostly painted from a live model but would love to do more from reference material. Thanks again for sharing your talents with us.

  25. I just tried the code on the 3.4 oz bottle and it says cannot be applied to my purchase! I then tried it on a few other bottles and NO GO! I even made sure that the seller was Amazon. HELp!
