Watercolor Fall Tree

Fall has to be one of my favorite times of the year! Every year we are doing something different with a fall theme. I love that I can have so many fun ideas

I also know we have had a few fun projects lately. It has been fun to see what my girls can come up with. We have made several different types of fall trees over the years. I think it has been one of my favorite because it can be different and fun in so many ways.

Today we did a watercolor and oil paste tree and loved every minute of it!

I love these open craft projects because each of us will make it our own way while what we use is similar the outcome is always fun to see.

One of our favorite fall books happens to be Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf. I think we read it every year. I love that my girls now read the book to me.

We read the book and talk about it while we each did our fall trees.

This is a great addition to the fall activities on the site!

How We Made our Fall Trees

First I gave them the option of drawing their tree first with pencil before using the oil pastel and watercolors.

After we have our tree size figured out we colored it with a brown oil pastel. We did the trunk of the tree and some of the branches in the tree as well.

Next, we painting the grass. We talked about how much grass there should be. Does the grass have leaves on it? Why would it not have leaves?

After that, we painted the leaves on the tree. I love that we all did this differently. We used the same colors but different ways of paint to make the trees unique.

The last step we did was to paint the sky blue. This was fun to see what color of blue we each used.
