Celebrating the beautiful Pig for the Chinese New Year 2019

I love pigs with their wise patient eyes. They are affable creatures and I love the various colours, shapes and sizes. I picked a Saddleback to paint when asked by the editor of Leisure Painter would I create a watercolour tutorial for the Leisure Painter magazine.

I didn't want to make too much of the face as it was to be a symbolic pig really but I revelled in emphasising that tell-tale stripe of white sandwiched between two definite black areas.

In the magazine you can follow along with this 4 page article. It is suitable for all levels of watercolourists.

Here is the link to Leisure Painter.


And a Happy New Year of the Pig to you.
