Watercolour Demo of a Doe for Ashley

Here is a demo of how I painted the doe to the left in watercolour. This sweet-eyed and elegant doe is a commission for a lady called Ashley from Texas..


Once I had drawn the doe I wetted the entire inside area with clear water and let it soak in a bit before adding some pale lavender to the inner ears, just under the eyes and around the muzzle.


Then I washed in some light tan colour for the head and neck.


Adding some deeper colour for the nose and eyes.

  1. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I receive four emails with the same comment. Is there a
    way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

  4. Thanks Melissa – it is great to do this although I need to find a clever way of getting my camera set up so I don't have to try and be an octopus with brush and camera in hand!!
