Indian Runner Ducks always look as though they’re marching off to create mischief!  In this beginners composition we’ll let you in gently, guiding you through each step to create your first characterful painting.  I hope you really enjoy it, and I’m looking forward to seeing your painting in the gallery!


STEP 1: Download your reference pack

STEP 2: Transfer your drawing

If you can freehand the reference image onto your paper, that's fantastic. If you need a hand transferring your drawing we've got that covered too; follow our "Quick transfer" tutorial here, then you're ready to go.

STEP 3: Press play...

STEP 4: Send us your work...

I hope you've really enjoyed this tutorial. Our full members get access to our exclusive facebook group with feed back directly from Karen and a wealth of knowledge from our in house team and 'founder members'. This is where we would normally encourage you to send us your work via facebook and instagram so we can share it but that's only available to our growing community. I hope you join us soon so we can show off your work too.

STEP 5: Continue your journey...

So now we've finished our first painting together. If you want to recap anything you can watch again, or maybe even give it another go. If you're happy then send us your work using our Facebook link above and let's move on to the next part of our beginners workflow, one of my favourites, were painting some 'Rockhopper Penguins'.
