4. Finally, using the 0# round brush, and the black face paint, outline the tree trunk, and add a line pattern inside the brown. Start at the top branch, and drag your brush down to the roots to create a line. Repeat this moving across from the left branches to the right. It’s okay if they intersect.  Add semi circle brush marks across the green leaves to give it more shape.
