Hide the “sky_colour” layer so you can better work on your tree. Add some more detailing to the branches.
Step 10 – Adding light on the tree
Still working on the “tree_colour” layer, add some light colours to some of the edges on the tree. Remember where you have positioned the sun and add the highlights accordingly.
Step 11 – Adding grass
Create a new layer and name it “grass.” Select the Brush Tool and use a green colour.
Right click on the canvas. When the Brush Setting window pops up, select the brush tip that looks like grass (112).
Draw some grass in front of the tree.
Step 12 – Detailing the tree
Hide your “sky_colour” layer so that it doesn’t distract you. Select the Dodge Tool and add some light to the tree. Add other details like the grains and the uneven light on the bark.
Your painting should now look like this.
If you like, you can delete parts of the branches so that it looks more realistic. I also created a greater contrast on the tree by adding more dark tones to one side and light tones to the other side.
Step 13 – Adding grass around the tree
Create another layer labelled “grass_back” under the “tree_colour” layer. Then use the Brush Tool to add some grass behind the tree. Use some greens and yellows. They do not need to be the same colour.
Create another layer labelled “grass_front” above the “tree_colour” layer but below the first “grass” layer that you created in step 11. Use the Brush Tool to paint some grass in front of the tree. Use some greens and yellows. They do not need to be the same colour.
Step 14 – Painting Flowers
Create another layer labelled “flowers” and paint a flower among the grass.
Then warp the flower (Edit > Transform > Warp) like the image below.
Copy the flower (left click + right click or Alt Gr) and place it around the grass.
Select the three flower layers (shift + click) and merge (Layer > Merge Layers or Ctrl+E) the three layers together.
You should now have only one layer for the flowers.
Step 15 – Painting clouds
Create a new layer labelled “clouds” above the “sky_colour” layer. Paint some clouds.
Create another layer labelled “clouds1” to add more depth to the clouds.
Step 16 – Adding leaves
Select the “tree_colour” layer and draw some leaves on the branches.
