Birch Forest Part IV

This is the final instalment of the birch forest painting. This is originally a painting tutorial on Youtube by Amy Pearce. This tutorial is how I did that painting. This tutorial will cover finishing your painting.


  • Fine point brush
  • Sea sponge
  • Titanium white
  • Crimson
  • Yellow ochre
  • Cadmium yellow medium


  1. Your trees need a few branches now. Using your fine point brush and white paint, paint some branches on your larger trees. Let this dry.
  2. Using a clean sea sponge, dab yellow ochre and cadmium yellow medium on top of the painting lightly.
  3. On the bottom of the painting use crimson and yellow ochre to create more foliage. Don't go all the way to the bottom because you want the dark red to show through.
  4. Dab whatever is left on the sponge across the top.
Congratulations your painting is now finished!

I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
