Rainbow Tree Painted Rock Tutorial • Color Made Happy

Art | Crafts | Kids | Painted Rocks

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This post may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.

Susie here from RockPainting101.com and I’m excited to be guest posting on Color Made Happy! Painting rocks and hiding them around town for others to find is one of my favorite things to do! In my never-ending quest for fun new rock painting ideas, I find myself going back to some of my favorite tutorials and giving them a bit of a twist. This beautiful rainbow tree painted rock was inspired by the apple blossom rock we did last Spring using a dotting technique that is very hard to mess up even for beginning rock painters.

Rainbow Tree Painted Rock Supplies (affiliate links provide for convenience)

  • Posca Paint Marker Pens
  • Rocks:
    • Dark 3-4. 5 inch rocks for painting
    • Light 1-2.5 inch rocks for painting

Rainbow Tree Painted Rock Directions

Step 1: Start by blocking the colors out on your rock with a light layer of dots. You want to lightly press your paint pens onto your rock. Do not press too hard or the paint will puddle. Make sure to leave space below your bottom layer of color for the trunk.

Step 2: Next, begin adding a second and much thicker layer of dots. Overlap the colors to blend them. Allow this layer of paint to dry completely before adding the trunk.

Step 3: Create a triangle at the bottom of the rock for the base of the trunk. Then starting at the top of your tree create branches. Slowly thicken up the branches and trunk as more branches come together. Continue to add branches until you are happy with your tree!

Step 4: Finally, fill in and give your trunk base some details and you’re done!

We love all of our rainbow rock painting ideas, it might just be my favorite theme to paint! See the video tutorial here:

Susie started painting rocks as a fun after-school activity with her little ones. Often she found herself sitting at the table painting long after they had left. Her love of painting rocks sparked her site RockPainting101.com. Where you can find endless rock painting inspiration and tutorials to watch.

Drawing a picture "Rainbow Tree" with oil pastels in mixed media

Spring is coming, Spring is on its way! (c) As the song sings. And I really want warmth, a fresh and gentle breeze, lush and fresh greenery around, bright sunny colors around. Any person, using this drawing lesson, will be able to add spring and joy to their lives. Today we draw a picture "Rainbow Tree" with oil pastels in mixed media.

The texture makes this picture especially decorative. Without texture, much of its charm and style will be lost. Therefore, paper should be taken with a large texture, something like a torchon. Look for suitable sheets among pastel papers, or watercolor papers. And do not be embarrassed that we will draw mainly in pastel. This paper is perfect for us, both in terms of properties and thickness, which is also important. It is impossible to do such work on thin paper, because after the embossing that we will do, the paper will move in waves. If you want to paint it on canvas, you will need to choose a canvas primed with a water-repellent primer. In addition, it is preferable that the surface does not “play”, but is fixed, for example, on hardboard. Therefore, let's go, it's better to buy thick paper, about 300 grams per square centimeter.

And choose a format no smaller than A3. More is possible. But you don’t need to grind it: on smaller formats, the mosaic canvas will not look.

Tools and Materials:

  • Thick Grain Paper coarse texture, A3 (or larger).
  • Embossing tool. For this task, for example: a stick with a ball on the end, a blunt knitting needle of a large size, etc. As long as it doesn't scratch the paper.
  • Oil pastel. The author of this DIY used material from Caran d'Ache. We can use any. If there is no oil pastel, then ordinary wax crayons can be used.
  • Watercolor dark brown - just one paint needed.
  • Acrylics: black, white and gold. (In extreme cases, you can replace gouache).
  • Lacquer matt - better in a spray can. “Why, because oil pastels don’t crumble?” - you ask. We will talk about this below.

The sketch here is quite simple, we will not dwell on it for a long time. Draw the sheet in squares, about 2.5-3.5 centimeters in size, right on the tree. No details should be separately divided into mosaic elements. The crown of the tree is an even circle that occupies a larger area of ​​the picture.

With oil pastels or wax crayons, paint over all the squares, except for those places where there will be branches and a tree trunk. Please note that all the squares are of different colors, dark and light mixed. But at the same time, we clearly see the blue night sky, grass and earth in the picture. Try, despite the variegation, to draw a certain color line as a whole: from the dark sky above to the lighter sky in the middle. And from blue to green grass.

It doesn't matter if the initial painting is not very accurate. Paint thickly, juicy, with a dense fat layer.

Now we take the embossing tool and push (“scratch”) in each square even strokes diagonally from corner to corner.

See what a wonderful texture you end up with.

After that, we take a dark brown watercolor and dilute it very thinly with water.

We apply watercolor to the entire canvas with a wide squirrel brush. We cover with an even layer right on the pastel! Remove excess moisture with a dry paper towel.

Oil pastel repels colored water. But it has small cracks and non-painting, which we further strengthened by embossing. In them, watercolor passes and colors the paper. It turns out a very expressive effect of roughness. Wax crayons also interact with water - that is, repel it. Therefore, they can be used in this work if you do not have oil pastels. Although it will be difficult to achieve such color richness from them.

In the next step, we will paint the trunk and branches with acrylic paint. Mix some shades of gray from black and white paints.

We dry the acrylic and draw the “bark” with a second layer with much lighter shades. Use white paint on some squares and pale shades of gray on others.

Dry the paint again. And add golden lights all over the picture. They seem to fly away from the tree. Therefore, the closer to the crown, the larger the golden dots should be. And on the tree itself we draw big lights and circles diverging from them.

Finished work can be varnished with matt varnish.

What a beautiful picture we got today! Very juicy, I want to not only hang it on the wall, but also take a picture and make wallpaper on my computer desktop. And a cover for your favorite notebook.

Speaking of wallpapers for your computer desktop! Good wallpapers for your desktop can be found on the site https://7fon.ru/ There are a lot of beautiful wallpapers with a wonderful spring mood. For every taste. And with flowers, and with nature. So spring is coming, spring is on the way! However, there are any pictures, not only spring ones.

Finally, a few features of oil pastels.

  • There are times when, after a while, oil from the pastel begins to appear in the picture. No need to be scared, just carefully remove them with a solvent.
  • The author of this lesson suggests varnishing oil pastels. It is not necessary to do this, because oil pastels do not crumble like dry ones. But she can stick to something. Therefore, oil pastels are also inserted under glass. However, this time our picture has a very expressive texture, which will be hardly noticeable under glass. Therefore, it makes sense to varnish this particular work and keep it open.

Rainbow Wood in the world - the most bright tree in the world - the most bright tree in the world

Hearing the phrase "rainbow tree" fantasy begins to draw bizarre paintings of artists, but not a growing and living plant.

In fact, nature is so diverse and unpredictable that such a phenomenon as rainbow tree exists in it. A little-known species of eucalyptus with bark decorated with all the colors of the rainbow is an extraordinary idea of ​​\u200b\u200bnature. What is this tree and where does it grow?

Rainbow tree or rainbow eucalyptus is a representative of a tropical species, the natural habitat is the island of Mindanao, which is located on Philippine soil. But today this unusual tree can be found in other regions. For example, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, South America, the islands of New Britain and New Guinea. You can meet rainbow eucalyptus in mixed forests with moist soil.

Undoubtedly, for everyone who is at least a little versed in the natural world, eucalyptus, first of all, is associated with Australia, we can see how funny koalas slowly chew its delicious leaves. Indeed, rainbow eucalyptus is the only representative of the class that can be found in the Northern Hemisphere.

Rainbow Eucalyptus is a fast growing tree, reaching a height of 70 meters and a trunk diameter of more than two meters. In countries with a cooler climate than in the homeland of the tree, rainbow eucalyptus grows a little slower, but still adds at least three meters during the warm season.

An interesting feature of this particular type of eucalyptus is that iridescent eucalyptus does not contain essential oil at all.

As for wood, it is no different from other varieties of eucalyptus - light in a freshly cut tree, with time it darkens a little when exposed to air.

The scope of rainbow eucalyptus wood is not large. In the homeland of the tree, it is used to make paper; rainbow eucalyptus produces the whitest paper of excellent quality. Used rainbow wood and for the manufacture and finishing of furniture, in shipbuilding for finishing cabins and decks.

Although the wood of this tree itself has excellent mechanical characteristics, is resistant to decay and pests, but in most countries, the rainbow tree is grown exclusively for decorative purposes. Its population is already very small and its bark is very beautiful in order to cut it down for commercial purposes.

The appearance of the rainbow eucalyptus is its main feature.

We'll talk about this later.

Rainbow Tree Features

Rainbow tree got its name for a reason, but because of its appearance. All the colors of the rainbow are collected on the bark of this tree, forming an interesting and unique pattern.

Seeing this tree in front of you, it's hard to believe that this is the work of mother nature, it seems that it certainly could not have done without an artist and colors.

This phenomenon is actually very easy to explain. It's all about aging and exfoliation of the bark, which is gradually replaced by a new one.

On any tree, the bark eventually ages, peels off and is replaced by a new one. Same with the rainbow tree. Its only difference is that with aging, the bark also changes its color.
