Tigers in the Jungle, a watercolor demonstration

Spend over twelve calming minutes with artist and YouTuber Jess Engle as she pulls layer upon layer of watercolor paint across each section of her drawing of Tigers in the Jungle. The video is one in a series of her watercolor and chat videos, in which she explains how she makes decisions about painting while she’s painting. We also see cute tiger faces come alive with a bit of quick inking.
