Hello friends, this is Smitha here and today let’s pull out our Tombow Dual Brush Pens and create a Fall Leaf Painting together.
Watch the video tutorial:

First, we draw the leaf shape using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I’m using a photo from this Fall Leaves Images post as a reference today. I used two to 4 colors to quickly sketch the leaf shape onto my mixed media sketchbook.
Next, add color into the leaf shape, mainly yellow and orange colors with a hint of green. Using a large paintbrush and little water, slowly blend the colors. Use a little water, and let the colors blend but not get watery and run into each other.
Add more details like darker tips to the leaf, and some orange dots. You can over the leaf with a black pen and add finer details if you want, but I chose to leave it as is – I love the simple look of this fall leaf painting!
I thoroughly enjoyed painting this today. It brought a little fall/autumn vibe to my sketchbook!
Let me know in the comments what you are creating in your sketchbooks that is fall/autumn themed right now!
