Iridescence- How to draw the Wood Duck’s Head (video)

Live workshop in which we construct a Wood Duck head and paint the iridescent areas. The trick to capturing iridescence is first to map out the locations of the colors. Then to block in the colors without muddying your colors. Then to add black or another dark value to the areas that are not reflecting color. The final step is to add some colored highlights with colored pencils.
