Splattering Watercolor To Paint A Cherry Blossom Sakura Tree
Finally, to make the branches look more integrated and less like they’re sitting in front of the flowers, splatter a very light pink mixture of paint around the areas where the branches begin and end. Try not to overdo this as you still want to see the details; a little goes a long way.
One final tip is that you don’t have to use watercolor paint; you just need to water down the paint of your choice enough to create paint splatter. You can also try this technique for painting other trees, only instead of pink cherry blossoms, you can use varying shades of green for the leaves of any type of tree. Most importantly, have fun with creating “organized chaos”, and keep experimenting for the best results!
