A vibrant little dude like this Tree Frog contains so many colours, it can be daunting to paint in watercolour. How do you paint them all without having them muddy or mix into each other?

Let me walk you through my process in this little video:

I hope this encourages you to try painting your own multi-coloured subject!  If you enjoyed the video, please leave me a comment below, I love reading them.


Happy painting,

    Hi Anna
    First let me congratulate you on your little 11week old girl. Thank you very much for your wonderful video. I found it very useful and informative. It has given me an incentive to go back to my water colours. All the best.

    So very glad to see your frog video up & it looks amazing on the magazine cover. Don’t know how you do everything with 2 kids, I have trouble with one dog. I look forward to starting your classes next month, it’s my treat to myself.

    What a delightful little fellow! I enjoyed your frog video immensely.
    Enjoy your little ones while they are young. Each stage of childhood brings its own delights.
    Looking forward to following your treats again as they gradually unfold – they are a feast for the soul and an inspiration for me!

    Благодарю вас Анна за интересный мастер – класс . Я люблю наблюдать за процессом рисования, так как интересуюсь разными техниками в рисовании акварелью. Так же поздравляю вас с девочкой и желаю вам чтоб ваши малыши были для вас источником вдохновения ! Лягушка получилась замечательная!!!

    Beautiful watercolour Anna. Your little tree frog came to life in this painting. I loved watching you paint. I have two of your beautiful books but watching this video of your painting growing from a line drawing to this colourful finish is wonderful art in action.x
