I stay in a place where the only seasons are winter and summer. One of the things in my bucket list is to explore Upstate New York during fall. I’ve seen the photos and the fabulousness of it all. I’m stumped! Perhaps the only reason I haven’t been there yet is because my vacations always fall during the other seasons.

If you’d like to have a look at the DIY watercolor fall wreath I created last year, hop over here ! And if you like creating patterns, check this autumn inspired fall acorn tutorial out.

Materials required for DIY watercolor fall art:-

I usually draw a circle with a pencil for my watercolor wreaths. This will give an idea of where the elements should go. Choose the right color palette and prep so that you can work on your painting quick. Because with any sort of painting where blending is required, it’s always beneficial to prep first. Some colors that go well are yellow ochre, vermillion hue,dioxane purple, naples yellow etc.

Next, start laying down your elements for the watercolor fall wreath. Roughly paint the leaf shapes with twigs and branches to support. ย In addition to getting the elements in place, make sure there is a balance to the wreath. You can understand this by keeping the wreath a distance from you and observing. Almost every little thing can be corrected with mere observation.

Continue adding the elements varying the colors. Furthermore, make sure there is enough water in your paints. I’ve made this mistake while I began and I see that almost everyone has this fear of adding water.

With loose painting in watercolors, you don’t need to be precise at all. That’s the beauty of this technique. And this is what I love about this technique. The careless strokes make it unique.

Complete the watercolor fall wreath. Use plenty of colors to make the wreath pop. You can stop right here or add some lettering inside. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see what lettering I’ll be doing with the cards I make out of this!
