Learn to Paint Autumn Trees with Watercolor

via Skillshare


Autumn season also known as Fall is the season of shedding of leaves from deciduous trees. The transition from green to light yellow, deep gold, orange, crimson and dark red is a beautiful sight to witness. 
Falling leaves and the colors of the season have fascinated every artistic person. This class is greatly inspired by the Autumn season and its color palette. In this class we will learn to paint different autumn trees incorporating the nature’s color palette.

I will walk you through the custom autumn watercolor palette and will also help you build your own color palette by looking at reference images. There is a bunch of exercises which will help you understand the different shape of trees, how to use colors and tonal values.  We will also go through some techniques and finally we will paint a variety of colorful trees incorporating the fall colors

Alright, let’s jump into the class, spend some creative time together
