With all those branches, leaves and bark, painting a robust pine tree can be a fun experience to dive into. Whether you're painting one from your own backyard or painting a Christmas tree to get in the holiday spirit, the whole process is simple to follow and a blast to explore.

In the world of water-based paint, watercolor and acrylic tend to be more well-known than gouache. But that doesn't mean gouache isn't worth working with. An in-between of watercolor and acrylic, its properties act more like watercolor while giving an opaqueness that's akin to acrylic. The chalkiness in gouache also can't be found in any other type of paint, and the hues are more concentrated to give you brighter, crisper washes.
