Would You Like to Discover an Easy Method to Painting Beautiful Trees?  Interested in Creating Christmas Paintings?

Join Lucy Thomas in EASY TREEZY, where you will learn how to paint stylized trees.  Discover how Lucy paints a Back Yard Pine and a Christmas Tree. She has always found trees to be fun and easy to paint due to their “natural-ness. ” Tree shapes aren’t perfect so your paintings don’t have to be either! There is no need to get overly detailed with these so its a good chance to practice painting loosely.
We will use a basic tree drawing and use lots of color to make them unique and beautiful. That same basic tree can be used to represent both our subjects with just a few small tweaks. These trees are quick projects, as well, so with just a little bit of time you can complete something that will make you proud.  AND…it really is easy! If you are worried you can’t draw a stick figure, this class is for you.

In this course, I will be sharing with you how to paint two trees, a basic tree with a beautiful background, and a Christmas tree.  In the first lesson, we will my basic tree shape and make the colorful background. This tree shape can be used in some different ways to make it resemble different trees. This tree is very stylized and isn’t meant to be realistic. You will learn various tips and tricks to move forward after this lesson to be creative in painting future tree paintings!  Lesson 2 will focus on painting a Christmas Tree!  The Christmas tree is just another version of our basic Backyard Pine . There are a few differences between the two trees, but ultimately, you will learn enough to get creative and move forward painting various Christmas trees!  The best part about the Christmas tree is that it is easy to paint, and makes a great handmade gift!  You will have so much fun in this class, and I can't wait to get started!

I didn't discover my passion or ability for painting until I was almost 50. I'm a late bloomer but I catch up fast!

I love flowers...painting them, arranging them, planting them, studying them and talking about them. Though painting takes up the majority of my time now, I own a small flower shop in my hometown where I can get my fresh flower fix whenever I need one. I have shown my work in galleries across the Southeast and teach art, in person, at the Huntsville Museum of Art in Huntsville, Alabama.

My blended family includes my ridiculously handsome husband, my son, who lives to fish, three lively stepsons, two black cats and a one of a kind dog we affectionately call Crazy Paws.



This course will have a private Facebook group just for you!  The artist will be actively involved with the class via Facebook the first four weeks the course is open!  After that the course will be a self-study.  The artist may or may not be involved after the four weeks.  We are looking forward to seeing your artwork!


Below is a list of the supplies that I will be using for the projects in this course.  However, you are always encouraged to use what you have on hand. 


  • Rectangular shaped canvases or panels work best for this tree subject. I suggest using 11x14, 9 x 12, 8 x 10, 4x6 or similar sizes. Personally I like to make these on boxed wood panels where the sides are about a half inch, or more, thick.


Optional paint products

  • Masters Touch heavy body “Ocean Green” is a paint I use a lot! I love how it covers the Teal when I am using the negative space technique. You can mix your own very similar color with Pthalo Green (Blue Shade) and lots of white.
  • On the Backyard Pine, I like to use a transparent yellow on top of the Pyrole Red Light original background color. This is a heavy body paint made by Holbein called Isoindolinone Yellow. No, I have no idea how to pronounce that!

And any other color you would like to use for your background “sky!”
Try mixing Ultramarine Blue with Yellow Ochre and other yellows to get varying shades of green. There are numerous colors you can come up with!


  • Flats and brights: various sizes up to 1 inch in width. Inexpensive multipacks of flat (flat edge) brushes made for acrylic paint are fine.

Other Materials

  • Paper Towels
  • Water to rinse brushes
  • Spray Bottle with Water (to spray off mistakes while the paint is still wet.)
  • Palette or something to mix paint on (a sheet of plastic on a table works!)
  • Easel sized to fit chosen canvas. Can be a standing or a table top size depending on the size canvas you choose.

    I enjoyed this class! Lucy has such a wonderful way of teaching, no pressure, just fun and certainly learned about painting! Looking forward to more!

    I have taken all of Lucy’s courses including this one. They are all so enjoyable and full of wonderful information that was a tremendous help to me. After this course on trees, I painted a tree that my family used as our Christmas card–we were so happy with it. I always get compliments on whatever I paint from Lucy’s classes. I am so grateful for the experiences I have had with Lucy’s online teaching and hope she will continue offering them–they are such fun. She is a great, talented teacher who makes painting so approachable and enjoyable.
