Lesson Four- Baby Orangutan in watercolour

Lightly draw in the figure using the grid as a guide
Rub out the grid and lightly paint in the darkest areas with a pale wash
Gradually build up layers of dilute colour letting it dry between layers
Carefully pick out the smaller details with dark colour
Keep building up the transparent layers of colour to make subtle changes of tint. Bring out highlights with opaque white gouche or acrylic paint.
