How to paint pine trees in a mural.


Paint the background let it dry fully and then use a fan brush and start with your darkest shade of green first. I recommend to use 3 diferente values of green. For less color mixing allow each coat to dry fully between coats. Finish with the lightest value. This should be the areas where the light is hitting the tree.


The overall shape should be a long vertical triangle. Take your time be patient and with short vertical strokes create each branch going horizontally.


In the middle of the tree where the bark would be paint some random areas a little denser to give a look that those branches are shooting out straight towards the viewer. This will allow the tree to appear more 3D.


Remember to give space between your branches so that the birds have a place to sit. It's nice to be able to see the background coming through the open spaces of the branches.


Periodically clean and dry your brush so that the bristles will not be stuck together while you are painting. This will help create the illusion of many pine needles.


The biggest goal is to have overall cohesiveness being made up by a tons of randomness.


Welcome home adventurous art lover, I'm so glad you're here my name is Yvette Staufert owner of Motley Muse. I started this company 19 years ago because I believe that art can be used as a tool to impact lives in a positive way. Here is how I've been doing it by createing art with others through art therapy working hard to develop art that speaks both to me and to others about the love that exist. Through your art exploration with me you will find peace.


YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A PERFECT ARTIST TO BE AN AMAZING ARTIST!


I Love Art!
Explore, have fun, and create art with me. I love hosting parties at my studio and I'm also a mobile paint party service; I'll bring the party to you. Providing customers with art supplies, and one on one instruction, that leads to a fun evening with friends and a take home finished piece of art. Enjoy one of my many fun online painting classes. Fundraisers that I host keep 50% of the money that they earn. The other 50% goes into buying all the art supplies needed and advertising for the fundraiser. My studio is handicap accessible, has comfortable bathrooms, and seats 20 adults comfortably. I also have a large variety of art for sale that is hung all over the walls in my studio creating a pleasant ambience.

Motley Muse is a mother daughter team that specializes in paintings. Mom, Yvette, was professionally trained at Northern Arizona University. Daughter, Isabel, is 15 years old. They have traveled the world extensively and immersed themselves in all kinds of art forms taking inspiration from everywhere. What started as a mommy and me project blossomed into a business. It’s objective is that mom is teaching daughter how to create art, and own and operate a business. They each do 50% of the work and share 50% of the profit. Last spring they raised enough money to travel all over Mexico for three months during Isabels’ summer vacation. This winter they hope to raise enough money so that Isabel can attend a student exchange program in Mexico. Yvette is quoted as saying, “I work hard to develop art that speaks both to me and to others about the beauty that exist.”
