Art Impressions Watercolor Tree Swings – Video Hop!


Art Impressions Watercolor Tree Swings

Nothing says lazy summer day like a big, shady oak tree with a swing, right? Use the AI watercolor tree trunks, then create beautiful leaves to sit beneath! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The first tree is lacy and mixes a lot of distinct colors.Another tree is looser with only a few areas of hard edges. And finally, a soft tree that focuses attention on the shade and the swing by letting the top edge fade out!

  1. Thank you Sandy for this watercolour/marker pen video tutorial on how to create different trees. I found it so interesting I had to watch it a second time.
