Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

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!
