You may be creating a lovely, delicate scene full of falling leaves, brilliant colors, beautiful forests... but wait. You're unable to create fall trees in your forest because of how difficult it is. This topic can assist you.

Painting With Acrylics

  1. Be sure to gather the colors that you wish to use, such as red, orange, yellow, and brown. Acrylics are easy to maneuver, thick enough to stay where you put them, and they come in a variety of colors to create your fall tree.
  2. Get a thin brush, as this will assist you in painting in the details. Alternatively, you can get a thick brush, which has a wider coverage of your canvas overall. It's personal preference.
  3. Get a canvas. This is the best type of material to spread your paint onto, and it will provide a neat texture for your painting. The texture should resemble the feel of crisp dying leaves.
  4. Start with using your wide brush and some dark brown paint in order to create the trunk. Start at the top, going down until you have made your tree trunk the desired length.
  5. Pour some red, yellow, or orange paint onto a paper plate or whatever disposable material you can use to hold paint. Dip your wide brush into it, and then wipe off a small amount of paint onto the side of the paper plate. You don't want too much, or it will ruin the effect of the leaves and the trunk being seen together.
  6. Dab your brush onto the canvas towards the top of the tree. This will create the effect of the leaves on the (invisible for now) branches of the tree. Pour more paint out onto the plate, mix colors, and repeat the previous step.
  7. Using your thin brush, get a bit of brown paint onto the bristles. Not too much, but enough to define the frail branches of the fall tree. Spread out the brown paint towards the top of your tree where the leaves are, and create straight-ish lines.
  8. Repeat all of the steps above, but in different parts of the canvas, until you have created your own forest of fall trees.
  9. Finished.

Using Watercolors

  1. Acquire a form of paper that is specified for use with watercolors. If you get paper that is too thin, the colors will bleed through. If you get a paper that is too thick, the colors will run off. You needs something that's just right.
  2. Get sponges or watercolor-specified brushes to enable you to spread the paint correctly onto the paper. Don't use anything that will damage the paper.
  3. Gather your colors. You can use acrylics that you have diluted with water, or normal watercolors for creating your tree. Preferred colors are red, orange, yellow, or brown.
  4. Set up your materials, and begin your painting! Use a paper plate, once again, to pour your colors onto and mix with. The wider, the better.
  5. Start with using your light or dark brown watercolors to create a thick or slender trunk for your tree. Drag your sponge or brush gently downwards to avoid getting too much paint on the paper. If you put too much on there, hold up the paper and allow the paint to run off.
  6. Using your sponge, get some red, orange, or yellow paint to create the leaves on the tree. Start at the top and blot the colors on it. This will create an effect that is close to crisp, rustling leaves on your tree.
  7. Repeat these steps until your paper is full of fall trees everywhere. Allow time to dry.
  8. Finished.
