An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to DIY Painting a Fall Tree With Acrylics

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Repeat all of the steps above, but in different parts of the canvas, until you have created your own forest of fall trees.

Easy, right?
