This week, OutBirding takes you "wet-on-wet" with renowned bird artist and Field Guides tour guide Dan Lane. From an amorphous background right through to his masterpiece, Dan shares with us his techniques for drawing birds and putting pigment to paper in his transparent watercolor and gouache painting of a Rufous-browed Peppershrike, which is featured in the current (2021) Field Guides calendar.
