Romantic tree motif in pastels

Acrylic painting with a watercolour effect

We're excited to show you this beautiful image of a tree, as it illustrates how you can combine permanent spray paint and acrylic markers to great effect. The first step is to paint a pastel-coloured background on your canvas using permanent spray. Once it’s dry, you can start creating your romantic tree motif. We’ll show you, step-by-step, how to achieve a successful result with watercolour effects using medium acrylic markers in pastel shades. We also provide a detailed video tutorial to guide you. Have fun!
