English Robin Quick and Easy For Beginners

The Promise of Spring

Spring is on it's way! (I know we still have winter to get through, but I'm anxious for an unrestricted spring.)

English Robin is a very simple and quick little painting. Students have made this into a card by folding it in half, with the bird on the front and branch on the back. Or you can substitute your favorite little songbird by changing the coloring. Others have done a series for cards or prints, using different bird, different seasons, or different background colors.

With this basic composition, you have lots of room to play and still produce a lovely painting in no time at all. You'll still get valuable practice in lose backgrounds, mixing on the paper, and vignettes.

Happy Painting!

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
