How to paint like Beatrix Potter – Mr Jeremy Fisher

I think this must be my longest video ever! It’s a video of me trying to paint a page from The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher by Beatrix Potter. I’ve not cut out a huge amount, maybe five minutes, so this is pretty much in real time.

My first attempt went very wrong, because I was using the wrong paper and the wrong brush. The second attempt was much better but I think the pencil is all wrong and I still haven’t got the right brush.

Last Friday, I went to the British Museum to get up close with some of her artwork to really understand her style. It was an amazing experience. One of the best art lessons I’ve ever had. It was like being with Miss Potter for the afternoon. I’ll tell you about it in my next videos.
