Beginner Level Tutorial
The tutorial includes 7 pages of written instruction, one large picture, six step-by-step pictures, two pictures of the watercolor set-up, and the drawing.

This 5"x11" colored pencil drawing is based on a photo by Jeff Johnson, my husband. It was taken while we were camping at Jolly Roger RV Park on our way to Key West, Florida. The pelican's posed all day!
The drawing is done with Lyra Polycolor colored pencils; listed below for your ordering convenience.
The background of the Arches 140lb hot press watercolor paper is stained with three colors of Daniel Smith watercolor: Lunar Black, Cascade Green, Manganese Blue. 
The watercolor paper is then adhered to a 5"x11" mdf panel. The metallic paper is adhered to a 7"x14" mdf panel.

The plastic watercolor palette will include enough paint for you to stain your paper. All you need is a large size round watercolor brush (or comparable brush) and water.
