How to Paint a Pine Cone in Watercolor

Working Wet on Wet for Beginners

How To Paint a Pine Cone

in Watercolor

This lesson uses basic colors for painting. Liquid masking fluid will make it easier to do a wet background wash, but you can paint around the pinecone if you don't have it.

Trace the outline page and follow along step by step with the video demonstration or written instructions for your own beautiful card or painting.

Outline pages are available in card size and 8 x 10 size. Most students did well with this, but be sure to make your outline drawing or tracing dark enough to see through the color.

Happy Painting!

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
