My Studio is very rural and whenever I look out of my window I often see a rather ridiculous pheasant, flouncing around making noises like a Clown-Car and nonchalantly walking in front of farm vehicles.
Aside from their hilarious characters, they are, I believe, absolutely stunning.
On close inspection you really will see every colour of the rainbow in their plumage. Metallics, deep teals, bright pinks, reds and purples. They are extraordinary.
This is why I have chosen them for this week’s Sketchbook Club theme.
I would like you all to have a really good look at the reference and mimic some of the colours on your pheasant paintings, don’t be afraid to go super bright and remember, it will only look completely fabulous once you have finished, so keep working on it and adding to it and I guarantee you will be THRILLED with your final masterpiece!
For this module you will need the following materials:
Set of Gouache
Paintbrushes size 1 & 6

It is just fantastic to see how everyone is becoming more confident as the weeks go by. I get to meet such lovely people too. 😀Swipe to see some fabulous pheasants created this week at Sketchbook Club! I don’t like using filters on the artwork and the light was fading but these were really vibrant in real life.

Feeling proud of myself. I'm no artist but I do enjoy #painting and decided to have a go Jennie Maizels Illustrator's Online #sketchbookclub to paint a #pheasant as a gift for my mister. You get an image of a pheasant, which you draw round in pencil then you transfer your sketched outline onto paper and paint your own version, using pencils to finish some of the detail. This was the result and I'm really pleased with it. 😊 Thank you jenniemaizels for helping make painting easier and more accessible to non-painty types like me. ❤ #sketchbookclubpheasant...
