How to paint a Fall tree


By TheArtSherpa, 2020-12-09
How to paint a Fall tree


Horizontal Step by Step Red Fox In Fall  copy.jpg

Painting a Fall tree 

#1 Find a Shape that is irregular and interesting to your eye. Remember this shape is three dimensional. 

#2 Tree Meditation for Artists

Get comfortable, Close your eyes, and breathe in and out slowly to the count of 4. 

To help you “ see” the tree better imagine the tree you are painting on a pedestal that is turning . 

Now Add light to the tree from the sun. Feel how warm the sun is. Add a soft breeze. 

In your minds picture of your tree as it is turning see the light falling on it and the breeze blowing through it. Can you see its irregular surface. How each leaf is looking for light and rain?  

Stop the tree at the view you want to paint it. Keep the light shining on it and the breeze blowing through it. The tree you are painting today is a living breathing thing. Do this for 5 or so minutes until you feel you can see your tree clearly. Once this is done your Artists mind is open and ready to paint. 

Open your eyes. 

#3 Paint in your deepest fall value for your tree keeping your base tree form. Use the edge of your brush scumbling in the leaves softly. Add your truck and some Bark highlights. Add the deepest value of landscape around the tree. 

#4 Add your darker midtones finding those highlights and leaves. The ones you visualized in the shade of other leaves nearer the light. These are the leaves where a small bird may be resting in the heat of the day.  Can you see the form? Can you see the shapes?

#5 It’s time to find the next layer now a brighter lighter mid tone! WOW this tree is coming together. With the corner of your brush add little leaf outliers. Remember your tree those leaves twisting in and out of the light? By now you should see dimensions of form coming out of your canvas. 

#6 Finally the highlights are lifting up! Bits of highlighted sparkle. Tree glitter. These are the leaves shining in the sun. Yes that is what Shining in the sun means. The diamond effect  all around your trees. The glow. Add delicate touches. 

#7 Now breath. You have painted a tree. A great Tree! A fun Tree. Keep practicing your artist eye when you are bored or falling asleep. In no time your dreams will be full of comforting branches.

Main Course 

The Eternal Garden. 

Together we will create an ideal fantasy garden landscape. I will show you how to make a Fantastical Fairytale  world that can reflect the hopes and dreams of your personal paradise. We will hide messages and symbolism  in our paintings as constant reminders of our hopes and dreams. Our images on the surface  will be ideal garden retreats but with a closer look reveal the world beneath the world. Hidden objects, messages  and treasure. It will be much more than just a beautiful fantasy  painting. It will be a bright colorful energy soul painting. 

This is a Concept study. I have done 10 concept sketches just for Lifebook 2021

Acrylic April

This was the first year for Acrylic April. Painting daily is the #1 thing an artist can do to improve their painting! skills! The idea we would meet live every day and paint together for a little under an hour for the month of April certainly caught fire. This is a wild event in that we had both word prompts AND full lessons. As far as I know it this was the first daily painting program targeted at beginners. You can find all the videos in order http://bit.ly/AcrylicApril2019Calendar And here is the website with rules

Acrylic April Testimonials

  • Lydia Duncan-Mabry : That I truly can do this...my grandmother was an artist and I never really tried thinking I wasn't going to be any good. Now I know I can and I am learning more every day.

  • Kelly Malouf: ACRYLIC APRIL SHOWED ME quite a lot of things. I can make time to paint every day. I can do paintings I never thought I could. I can commit to doing something that makes me happy and that is OK. All paintings have an ugly phase--but now I know how to get myself out of it ;). I didn't think I'd see improvement, but I did and by completing the 30 day challenge I became proud of myself--such a great feeling.

  • Lisa Swain Stickability: is 95% of ability!

  • Catherine Socha Rathbun :... never to look at a painting thinking, “I can’t possibly paint THAT yet.”

  • Nancy Beeles Lewis: My life time dream at 80 could come true and I am now an artist.

  • Peggy Ducolon Smith: April Acrylics 2019 showed me that practicing every day will improve my techniques even when I thought I had learned it well already and that everyday can and is a learning experience of some kind (just because I did not like the painting I still learned something that I NEEDED TO LEARN

  • Keff Green: You have time if you make time. I worked full time and still got my painting done and enjoyed it to the max!

  • Darbe Lopez: Acrylic April taught me how important it is that other household members support my "me" time

13 days of Halloween

Every year we meet up to do 13 Halloween paintings. This is so much fun and at this point we have more than 30 total Days of Halloween tutorials. In fact we created a Challenge for anyone that painted all 31 days they would get a free month of Patronage on the website.

I like doing Life-book because it allows for so much growth and well-being with any students. As a teacher, I'm excited about anything that will help you reach your personal art goals. This is one of the only programs that I will participate in and recommend. I do that because I truly believe it's wonderful on every level. First, I enjoy how positive the program is and how focused on individual grow it is. Secondly, the teachers are the best collected together I have seen if your goals are healing, self-awareness, and artistic growth. Last, but not least, the cost of the course outside of materials is very good compared to other programs like this that I don't feel are as richly thought out, driven by a sheer love of sharing creativity, and well-being.

They have a lot of Teachers

As you may be aware with 30 teachers and 80 lessons there's a lot here to the course. You will be exposed to so much in different styles and thoughts in art. Each teacher brings something very special to the year. Yes, there are many faces. But that's just the surface of what I've seen. I've seen dream catchers, sculpture, rock art, and much much more. In fact as a teacher, I am a bit of an odd duck in the group BUT, when am I not? This will be the third series that I have done with Tamra Laporte. I love the work that she does both spiritually, musically and artistically. I think she curates valuable programs for her students .

New Years Resolutions for Artists

new years .jpg

What you guys had to say !!

  • Joanne LaMar : To paint at least every month. To learn how to sell my paintings instead of just giving them to people who want them and to try new techniques in my paintings. Be bold.
  • Roseann Amaranto : Accept my artistic style for what it is. I’m more of a whimsical illustrative painter/artist even though I have an art degree and taught for 25 years. It’s what makes me happiest 🌹 💕
  • Tammy Racicot :To keep evolving into the artistic butterfly I've become. (never in my lifetime did I think I could achieve so much personal growth on so many levels from the most loving person/people who wanted me to succeed. When I never thought I could)
  • Renee Sanders : My artist New Years resolutions are to paint one painting of something I love every month, participate in Acrylic April and paint something new daily (only April) and paint enough wood circle ornaments to sell at the grandkids secret santa workshop. I am going to make myself a priory. I have put myself and my ambitions on the back burner for 2 years to raise my grandchildren, although they are still with me I am going to find some time for myself
  • tanya mARTin: Draw and paint everyday. Trust myself enough to venture away from tutorials/art hacks and find my own style. Continue to improve on what i have learned and step out of my comfort zone. Try new mediums and see what they have to offer.
  • Caren Kaziyev: To challenge myself and not stick with familiar techniques. In 2020 I challenge myself to try new things and be okay with my attempts not looking “perfect”. Just to keep at it.
  • Pamela Tilley Fisk : To stop judging myself against others. See my own colors.
  • Kim Nedland : To try and paint, and draw, even if my depression, makes me feel like can't do anything at all.
  • Brandy Orner : Just paint. Stop agonizing over planning, research and details and JUST PAINT!!!
  • Bryon Rice To paint more of how I feel, even if it's not realistic..so that others can feel the music I composed, which is the paint and the brush my instrument.
  • Stacey Wright : to organize all my supplies so I can start using them everyday!! And then start drawing/painting more often at least 3 times a week.. Hard when you have 2 little girls 4 and 7! Also my 7yr old is an amazing artist already and want to work and teach her more so I need to learn more and practice more to teach her skills i wish i was taught at a young age!! So hoping to do alot this year with her
  • thetolleycrew : My resolutions are to get out of my comfort zone, and paint loose. Not worry about every little detail. To find my own style.
  • luanajarecki : To enjoy life as it handed to me. Find humor in every aspect. Release my creative juices and make any art I can. At 71 I plan to do much more.

By TheArtSherpa, 2019-09-15

If you Love the Sanderson Sisters and wanted to get your " Amok Amok Amok " on one of these acrylic  versions of the Tale Might be Just the trick. (note this is fan art) While the painting is mine The Hocus Pocus Characters that inspired this piece are not.So lets Call these three The Cosplayers of Hocus Pocus -

In the Beginning I created this design 

It has been wildly popular. But them I wanted to make some New ideas too this the Meeting of the Halloween Board . The Moon is Cosplaying Jack the Pumpkin King and the 3 sisters are Cosplaying the Sanderson Sisters. All costumes were  handmade because you know they are makers.

Steam Punk Girl


By TheArtSherpa, 2017-02-28
Steam Punk Girl

Steam punk is an amazing art style! This painting has a project  for how to create the patina for the background. A how to Draw the girl in that was LIVE on fb. We covered her in two awesome body types. BUT due to enthusiasm to create designs that are even more inclusive I went ahead and made her in 3 body types for the traceable. It is important that in a personal creative Process we create work that has a positive reflection of our world. A positive reflection of who we are and the people we love. I would encourage you to take advantage of the Hair and  Skin quests as well at the 3 trace-ables so that you can create a painting that feels personal. Paint yourself into your steampunk fantasy. 

Draw it :

Wizards and Artists make all the Muggles Nervous

When I tell people I am an artist they look at me as if I said I am a Wizard for a career path. In fact for years I dropped artist and said stay at home mom. Which still was received with more acceptance and respect than Artist. But I am out of the game closet and wearing my paint and smock proudly. Yes I am an Artist. My imagination is what I will be using to pay my light bill this month and no I will not be imagining the lights on. It is interesting how what you do and who you are can affect people. After all its not like I drug them out of their job and asked them to also be an Artist with me. We are not a cult we are a Culture! In fact artist, writers,chefs, and Musicians are what give us any sense of culture. In creation we are part of the divine and are therefore a little magical...scary. Perhaps our bare open honestly in the face of social convention is just to daring. Either way I am only daring to be myself.

I have been wanting to paint this story for a long time. A lone man walks a set of tracks in a storm on a journey to unknown parts. I expect to add lightning to the painting and love showing some new methods

I am very excited to announce the February Sherpa ATC Swap! Now that we have one month under our belt, many of us are feeling a little more confident as to how the ATC swap works. For any Sherpettes who are new to the ATC Swap, ATC’s can be a wonderful opportunity for artists to refine their skills by painting in miniature, experiment with different artistic mediums, find inspiration in the artwork friends have sent you, and uplift the spirit of other art friends by providing a bright spot in their day when an ATC is discovered in the mail.

SHERPETTE SWAP (Community ATC Swap)

As always, each ATC should be a handmade (not printed from a computer) piece of art and follow a few simple rules:

1. The dimensions must be 2.5 by 3.5 inches (so they fit in baseball card sleeves)
2. Must be done on cardstock or slightly harder (some use rice/cereal boxes)
3. Include your ARTSHERPA.COM NAME and MONTH/YEAR OF THE SWAP on the back of the ATC (for thank you’s)
4. Most Importantly ... HAVE FUN!

***The Sherpette ATC  is currently a community run artist trading card swap, The ART Sherpa and her team are not responsible for the ATC swaps, please send any questions or concerns regarding the sherpette Artist Trading Card Swap to Alan Smith at AlansArtAdventures@gmail.com.

Keep art in your heart,
