In part one of this loon painting we mix our base colours and then block in the board using blends to create a gradation.
In part two we concentrate on building up the shape and form in the loons head and add initial detail.
In part two we move on to the body building space and form. We then learn how to create the spotted pattern and how to vary the values to create shape.
In part four we learn how to take our blended areas and break them up to create feathers and down. We finish off by adding detail to the body.
