Drawing Livestock in Watercolor and Pen Ink
If you would like to include grazing animals in your rural landscape, here are some step-by-step examples.

Step 1: Study the animal’s form. Simplify the various body areas into easy-to -draw geometric shapes. Use the shapes as building blocks to rough in a light pencil drawing.

Step 2: Refine the drawing, erasing the lines of the geometric shapes as you proceed. Lay down a light wash of watercolor to establish the basic color of the animal. I used a thin, flat wash of Burnt Sienna plus orange for
the calf.

Step 3: Give the animal form by
wor king darker color mixtures into the shaded areas of the body. Accent the painting with pen and ink, avoiding harsh ou tlines.

In Discover Your World in Pen, Ink Watercolor, you’ll learn how to paint draw landscapes, animals, flowers and still-lifes in pen, ink watercolor.
