How To Paint Pumpkin Leaves

10 Amazing (and Easy!) Tutorials

Introduction

I came to learn from many of you that you’ve struggled with your pumpkin leaf paintings, and couldn’t even find tutorials to help you out. I too have faced this issue, which is why I decided to take matter into my own hands, and search for helpful tutorials and demonstrations by myself. Thankfully, after a good amount of studying, I was able to list down a few good tutorials, which I think will prove to be really helpful to you all.

For painting pumpkin leaves, you first draw the leaf, or imagine an outline for it. Next, you decide on the elements and composition of your painting. Once all that has been done, you simply start painting the leaves. Whether you want to make it detailed, or a simple artwork will be up to you, and how good you are with the brush.
