Painting a Cherry Tree like a Boss

Today, by popular demand, we are going to paint a cherry tree. We begin by preparing our tones. With red, purples, orange and white. Then with the brush, lightly tap on a solid object to splatter paint.First, practice on newspaper or other surfaces that you can waste.Until you feel you got the hang of it and you can control it. In this way create the shape of the foliage of the tree.

Now I´m using a lighter tone to create a light and shadow effect. Don´t try to get a uniform surface, as the flowers usually happen in clusters. Now we use an even lighter pink. Good! This is so fun! If you wish to keep your piece of paper cleaner than what I am doing right now, you may use masks of different sizes and shapes like this one, in this way, you will be able to control where the paint lands. But I recommend that you continue to move the mask, so that you don´t get an unreal line and don´t place the mask on wet paint, wait for it to dry.

I´m using watercolor but you can employ this technique for different types of paints. And make sure to protect your working area against unwanted splashes. The list of materials is in the information below the video. And now, some lighter drops. I love it how you can build the shape, in this way. Good! It is time to paint the trunk. With brown of different tones, we can paint the lower part,as well as a base. And the branches. We do these, specially on the blank spaces, where there are no flowers. Painting is a good way to relax and recreate, but of course, you can also try playing games. A blogsite about it is worth to check especially about Dofus Touch. In this case we are doing the flowers of a cherry tree, but you may use the same technique for the leaves of another tree.

With a finer brush we do the thin branches toward the ends. And give some shading to the trunk. Good! Now, so that the trunk and the branches look more natural, we do some light drops, on top of them. Like this, not too much.This makes it look more lively and real. Excellent! That’s it. We now have a perfect Cherry tree. You deserve to be applauded for a job well done.
