In this tutorial, we will create a love bird inspired by the work of contemporary artist Robin Mead. Learn about layering watercolors and printing using simple materials to create textures. Once dry, sketch and paint your bird and add additional elements to make it your own. The last step is to add details using paint pens, gel pens or any fancy pens you have!
