Beginner Animal Watercolor Paintings
New to watercolor? This is a great place to start! Animals can be tricky at times, but we've narrowed it down to 8 projects that are the most beginner-friendly paintings to help you create something you're proud of. Each of these watercolor kits teach different techniques that help you to build upon your skills and make it your own. Whatever you do, as you play with these fun animals, don’t judge your work until you are finished. Animals are notorious for looking wrong until the very end. It's all about layers and patience, friends!
In the end it doesn't matter which painting you start with. Don't overthink it—just pick one that speaks to you and you will find the mystery of watercolor is not really a mystery at all. No matter how many tries it takes, how many sheets of paper, or how many different projects you try until you find the one that "clicks", YOU ARE AN ARTIST. You got this. And we believe in your ability to create.
