E-tutorial Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret - Intermediate Level Project

Rendered in Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils on 11"x14" hot press watercolor board. Students may substitute 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.

The only prep is to apply the drawing to the watercolor board.

Uni-Ball pen is used to transfer the drawing to the surface so that fine thin lines are achieved. The red ink allows you to see what has been transferred.

Sticky Putty is used to remove colored pencil and graphite.

The background is achieved with watercolor, but thin washes of acrylic can be substituted. You will need a large round watercolor brush or an acrylic round brush. 

Daniel Smith Extra Fine watercolors for staining the background

  • Kyanite Genuine
  • Prussian Blue
  • Manganese Blue Hue
  • Rose of Ultramarine

If you do not have Faber-Castell Polychromos a conversion is provided for Lyra Rembrandt and Prismacolor Premier. PLEASE NOTE: all instructions are with the Faber colored pencils.
