Here is my first tutorial for you guys! How to paint simple watercolor leaves. .
This is one of the most simple ways to paint leaves with watercolors! I am using a size 16 round Princeton brush in this video. You can use a smaller, or larger brush if you would like. It just depends on what size you want your leaves. The paint that I am using is Winsor & Newton sap green, on Canson 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. Now, let’s get to painting!
Load your brush up with color. I sometimes will wipe my brush on a paper towel at least once if I can see that I have loaded it with too much color. This will take some practice. The tricky thing with watercolor is learning how to control the water.😉 Don’t worry! You can do it!
Use the very tip of your brush and with light pressure paint a line for the stem.
The leaves!🤗 I started at the very top of the main stem to paint my first leaf. Just like when you were painting the main stem lightly drag your paint brush to create the stem for the leaf you are getting ready to paint. You will then hold your brush in a vertical position and apply pressure then gradually release pressure for the tip of the leaf. I hope that makes sense!
