In this tutorial you will learn how to draw a realistic watercolor bear in just 5 steps using watercolor paints and Benicci Detailed Brush Set.

Step 1.

A detailed pencil drawing is a great way to begin a new watercolor painting. Rarely has a good painting been the result of a bad drawing.

Step 2. 

A loose wet into wet wash can begin to define the subjects and background. Interesting shapes, values and colors can result, adding excitement for the final painting.


Step 3.

After the paper completely dries, another wet into wet wash can begin to define the subject. In this case, a bear.

 Step 4.

Wet brushstrokes onto dry paper can begin to add interest and build up the details of the bars furs.

Step 5.

More details are added to give shape to the bears body. Values and colors are adjusted to give a completed, uniform look to the finished painting.
