Learn to paint 10 types of leaves in watercolor

In this tutorial, I’m going to share with you how to mix different green colors and how to paint 10 easy and simple types of leaves. This is beginner-friendly, and you can complete it in only 15 minutes.

Supply used:

  1. Bee 100% cotton watercolor paper
  2. Cotman by Windsor and Newton paints
  3. Canson XL ( for swatching )
  4. Red velvet round brush size 6
  5. Two cups of clean water

Tips :

  1. When painting leaves, try to paint different sizes ( big, small) to make them look natural and organic
  2. When painting with watercolor, you will get an uneven wash, this is the nature of watercolor and that’s okay. Just leave it as it and try not to go back to fix it. Uneven washes create light and dark value, and this will add depth to your painting. This should consider as one of the great characters of watercolor.
