This artwork looks so complicated and detailed, but it’s not. It’s so easy to create the detailed leaves with a simple plastic dish brush, and to help with the tree, we have a free Tree Outline Template with our printable PDF of this lesson plan.
You Will Need:
Let’s Get Started:
Print off the Free Template of the tree trunk.
Pour a little paint onto your paint tray or plastic container lids. You will only need a small amount. If you are painting autumn colours, use yellow, orange and deep yellow. Otherwise, use green and leaf green for the tree leaves.
Use a pressing stamping action with the brush to get the leaves effect on the branches of the tree. Try testing on a spare sheet of paper until you are happy
with the consistency of the paint.
When you have finished the leaves, paint the trunk and showing branches with a paintbrush.
Once dried, you can use a black marker for highlights.
