Step Six

Add branches in the spaces between clusters of flowers, and switch to the size 00 round brush when you get to the tips of the branches (they should be found on the outer extremities of the tree). One useful tip for painting branches: start from the tree trunk, then imagine the branch coming out and stretching upwards and outwards. Follow the direction with your brush, and only put the brush to paper when you see an opening among the flowers. Follow it all the way to the end, where it tapers off. Also, remember that branches don’t grow in one straight line; rather, they grow in several straight lines, or sometimes not even in a straight line at all. You can look at a picture of a tree without leaves for reference. Don’t forget to add smaller twigs and branches that branch off from the main tree limbs.
