In this tutorial, we have fun with paint and experimenting with colours to create a dotted painting, using sponges, cotton buds and corks! Thank to Rachel Akers from Akers of Art.
To make this painting, you will need:
- Either a piece of paper/card to paint on or a small canvas
- A variety of Acrylic paints (including green, light blue and brown)
- A paintbrush and some water to clean it with
- A paint palette
- A paper towel
- To create the dots on the tree you will need a range of circle shaped items such as circle sponges on sticks, cotton buds, a cork bottle top or anything else you have on hand.
Follow along on our Youtube tutorial, which can be accessed at the bottom of this page and scroll down for a printable tree outline template and dotted tree painting examples.
You could even try using this dotted painting technique to any drawing of your choice, the options are limitless!
