Fall Leaves With Acorns in Watercolor

Full Color Realism For Beginners to Intermediate

Painting fall leaves is fun!

But how do you turn one awesome leaf or two into a whole painting? (And sometimes, the colors can overwhelm your composition, leaving you with a pretty but confusing mess of color.) In this lesson, you'll learn how to paint an entire beautiful composition that will amaze your family and friends.

For a unique composition, substitute your favorite fall leaf for one or both of the big maple leaves in this painting. As long as your values are light or medium, the darker background will make them stand out and glow.

(There's an extra reference photo with a gorgeous red maple leaf if you like a more dramatic picture.)

Go From THIS:


To THIS!

And the painting YOU do will look even better.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson.

My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.

I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.

I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!

Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.

Happy Painting.
