How to Paint a Cherry Tree in Watercolor – Splatter Painting Trees – Paint a Tree – Sakura


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial. I am Leonardo Pereznieto and 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. [laughs] 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. 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! If you enjoyed it, please give it a LIKE, share it to your friends
and subscribe to Fine Art-Tips, and I will see you on Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ Subtitled by Grethel Trejo
