Classic Christmas

Have you gotten your Christmas tree yet? Last year we cut ours from the woods along our cornfield. My favorite tree yet! Start your painted tree with quick, side brushstrokes pointed down and branching out.
Don’t overdo it! Leave some white highlights between branches and add a little stem.
Two rows down; cute-ness!

Festive Foliage

Using a brown color, make short quick strokes in the shape of a branch.
Add some berries between branches; scatter them, and don’t overthink it!
Mix a touch darker brown and add some shadows to some of the branches.
