Circle Tree Modern Art

Author: Amanda Formaro


  • 2 pieces of 16″x20″ wood framed canvas
  • Acrylic paint: dark purple purple, gray and black
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrushes


  • The first thing I did was to sketch out the design on paper and use colored pencils to help me decide what color would go where on the canvas. I measured the paper and figured out where each of the trees should be. That made it a lot easier to then draw the designs directly onto the canvas.
  • I used a pencil to lightly draw the design onto each piece of canvas.
  • Next I thinned some black acrylic paint and used a liner brush to paint on the branches and trunks.
  • I loaded a paintbrush with paint and, in one motion, added each of the circle leaves.
