Try a different and lesser known watercolor technique for adding a bark-like texture to trees in Linda Baker’s tutorial. It involves sharp objects, so be careful!

Materials used for this watercolor technique:

  • Reference picture of a tree or forest
  • An almost complete painting of the reference picture on watercolor paper (the paint should still be wet)
  • Painting palette with preferred watercolor paints
  • Set of watercolor brushes (mainly round brushes, sizes 0-6)
  • Two cups of water
  • A towel or rag to dry off the brushes
  • Pocket knife
  • Table salt
