Painting a tree can be a good starting point for beginner painters. How to paint a tree on a wall is quite easy since tree is an object that is easy to find and there are various types of trees. Using acrylic, you can make a beautiful look of a tree on your canvas.
Although you completely know the look of a tree, this will be better if you look at the real object or from photograph when painting a tree. You can make one or two sketches of the tree before you begin painting. How to paint a tree on a wall can be started from the base of the trunk and move upward. Do this process using a flat medium-sized or a palette knife. Different type of tree will have a different trunk, so you have to study the trunk and make the right line. The same thing is that a trunk should get thinner and thinner to the top. Use a smaller detail brush to add texture to the bark and do quickly because dry acrylic will make the details not blend. After that, you can start making the leaves using a pointed medium-sized brush. You can apply paint in quick brush strokes to make the leaves using a mixture green of yellows and browns. Highlight the side of the leaves when the sun is shining with a lighter green using a small pointed brush.
Apply quick brush strokes shortly for the highlight once the leaves completed. On the side where the sun is not shining, make shadows with a darker green or brown using a small pointed brush quickly. At the base of the trunk, add a shadow using a flat brush on the far side from the sun. The shadow should be a darker green than the grass if it is growing. If the base is muddy, the shadow should be darker brown than the mud. Now you can add details missing such as pine cones, animals and nests. How to paint a tree on a wall is fun and interesting. So, you can express your skill and creativity through the tree.
