    Paint 3/4's of your paper with water first and then add some blue paint. To create nice clouds blot some of the paint off with a scrunched up kleenex.

    Step 3

    Add some green in the lower end of the paper for the grass. Let the background dry. Mix up some watery black or dark brown paint. It needs to be an inky consistency. Paint a tree trunk with a thin brush. Add some drops of this watery paint at the top of the trunk you painted. I use an eye dropper for this. Using the straw, blow in some branches rolling the bead of paint up with the straw. You may want to practice this on some scrap paper first.
