If you’re a beginner in painting or simply looking for an easy painting technique that you can try, then check out this video tutorial by Little Fantasy art on YouTube. This hack will definitely make painting a tree easier with the help of a stainless steel scrubber and a few cotton swabs! You can make a small or big version of this art project, then display it in your house, or give it as a gift to a loved one.
Make a few dots of paint on the upper center of the canvas with brilliant purple, then a couple of dots of medium magenta underneath, and maize yellow at the bottom. Spread them out using a painting knife, make sure to cover the whole canvas as much as possible, then dip a flat brush in white paint, and brush the paint to blend the background. Mix the burnt umber and black paint, then use a pointed or a detail brush to draw the tree’s body and branches.
Next, grab an iron scrubber and blot the mixture of burnt umber and magenta, then dab it all over the branches to paint the leaves, and dab a lighter shade above it using the same scrubber. Lightly dry the paint with a hair dryer if you want, then tie a couple of cotton swabs with a rubber band, dab it in paint of a lighter shade than the previous, and dab it all around the leaves. Add some random white dots, then paint small branches, and add a few light strokes over the body of the tree for a light effect.
