[VIDEO] How to paint a loose watercolour Barn Owl

I love painting barn owls; their beautiful big eyes and heart shaped face are such a joy to capture in loose watercolour. Not to mention their distinctive yellow feathers with subtle patterns and elegant wings.

The barn owl with their heart-shaped face and elegant wings have also been featured on my Jennifer Rose Gallery gift collections too. They are always popular when they are featured on my cushions, gift accessories and greetings cards.

This is a perfect tutorial to help you loosen up with your watercolours and to help you achieve a pleasing result in a short time.

So, come and join me in my studio at Jennifer Rose Gallery from the comfort of your own home where I will guide you through every step to paint a loose watercolour barn owl like me.
