Hey guys! Welcome back to Art Lab! We all know that distressed clothing items are in right now, but what about distressed art? I got the idea of “distressed art” from an old pair of jeans while cleaning out my closet the other day. (who knew that old jeans could be art inspiration? XD) After a few attempts I finally got it right – and I’m super excited to share it!
Hello friends! Today I’m excited to be back with another Art Lab post! Since fall has officially begun, I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a neat watercolor leaf tutorial. It’s super easy, yet super cute!
I’d recommend practicing a little first, as if you’re not an expert watercolor painter (like me) then the leaves shape can be a little tricky at first. But then again, if you’re an expert……
Basically just paint some random leaf shapes, if you want you could also lightly pencil them out.
But of course all of this is just your personal preference.
Next, paint some leaves on your actually canvas, ATC, sketchbook page, or whatever material you’re using. You can make them as simple as you want, or as complex as you want. I’d recommend trying a few colors and sticking to them, rather than just using whatever colors you want at the moment. Although that could and couldn’t turn out neat. Remember, there is no wrong way to do art.
After the paint is dry and you are happy with it, then you can start adding details with a fine tip pen, such as stems, veins, etc.
Once you are happy with the pen details, then you’re finished! Congratulations!
Also, if you did try this technique, I’d love to see it, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to share a picture! 😀
