Watercolor Techniques for Realistic Snowy Trees & Bushes
Step 3: Tree Trunk, Branches, And Leaves
With the size 4 brush, mix Burnt Umber with some Cadmium Green Deep, Payne’s Grey, and a touch of Alizarin Crimson, Permanent Violet, and Mineral Violet. You can also add in some of the branch’s color if desired. With this color, paint the tree trunk where it shows through the branches and where it comes out from the ground. Then, switching back to the branch’s color, add any finishing touches to the branches and leaves.
