Fall Tree Watercolor and Q-Tip Painting

Fall happens to be a favorite theme for us! We have loved doing different fall activities over the years!

And we have just loved fall tree activities. We do at least one or two every year! And it is fun to do them.

Plus there are so many great fall books to go with the activities as well.

Fall and the changing of the leaves is a favorite for us. We are always looking outside to see how the leaves have changed. And we have done several fall trees over the years. I love doing them and it is fun to see new ways we can do something.

The book Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf has been a favorite for years! We read it every year. I love the pictures and learning about fall leaves.

It is also fun to read the book: Why Do Leaves Change Color? (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2). You can always add in science while doing art!

I always have fun mixing up art projects. And today we mixed watercolor painting and painting with q-tips! It is loads of fun to do. Plus it makes a great art project

How to make the Fall Tree Watercolor & Q-tip Painting

You can start by painting water on the watercolor paper. Help helps the watercolor spread on the paper. When painting the whole area we use a big paintbrush.

After that, we did a blue sky. We mixed two of the blues together to make our sky and with the extra water on the paper, it is easy to mix the colors.

We put the paint in the try and then started on the tree.

We used q-tip for the tree. We started with the trunk of the tree. We did long strokes to make it.
