Step by step instructions for this autumn painted rock
Recreating this fun fall tree is easy. You can either dot using 5M Posca pens, or the back end of your paintbrush! I started with a light blue basecoat on my rock. Then alternate between whichever color of fall leaves you like.
Also, add a bit of grass along the bottom of your rock. Now start to add on your tree trunk. Pull from the farthest tip of the branch back down towards the trunk. Let the trunk get thicker and thicker each time branches meet. This will give you a very natural looking tree.
While your brown is wet you can add in a couple lines of black. Blend them together using a brush or going back in with your brown.
When you are done with your trunk start adding the top layer of leaves. Adding different colors while wet will help blend to beautiful shades.
Add a second layer of grass in front of your tree trunk and a few leaves along the base too.
No two trees will be exactly alike, but they will all look beautiful!
