Step 1: Sketch It Out
First, I began with a light sketch of the tree with a white eyeliner pencil.
Step 2: Fill in Large Areas
Next, I used green face paint (Mehron Paradise) to fill in the triangle shaped tree. Then, I used light blue (Mehron Paradise) to fill in Linus' blanket wrapped around the tree trunk.
Step 3: Add Decorations
Then, I begin adding my "decorations" using red, yellow, pink, and whtie paint (all from Mehron Paradise).
Red- bulbs and star
Yellow- extra bulbs
Pink- paper chain
White- popcorn string
Step 4: Outline
Now, I used black paint (Mehron Paradise) to outline the entire picture.
Step 5: Add Background
For the final touches, I used dark blue paint, and a mix of mauve and white paint to create the background, complete with a dark night sky, snowy ground and twinkling stars.
Step 6: O Christmas Tree!
How faithful are your painted branches! Now, that's a tree that Charlie Brown would have approved of!
