Creating a Mushroom Painting is about fun and productive use of time. However, novices don’t know what to paint on a canvas and how to give it the right directions.

Don’t think too much because we have gathered some valuable knowledge of how to make a Mushroom Painting that looks super aesthetic yet realistic.

So, without wasting much of your time, let’s get it started!


Mushroom House Painting Tutorial

A few things should be kept remembered when you are just starting the Painting of Mushroom, which are given below:


Materials Required

  • A White Canvas (size depends upon you, but we recommend using 11 x 14)
  • Paints (Watercolors or Acrylics)
  • Brushes (8 round, 4 round, and ¾’ flat wash)
  • A White Chalk
  • An Optional Traceable Paper
  • Some water in a cup
  • Tissue Paper for Cleaning Hand


Color Suggestions for Mushroom Drawing

Picking up colors for your Painting of a simple Mushroom is up to you. However, we think the following would be great options:

  • Cadmium Red Medium Hue
  • Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue
  • Hooker’s Green Hue Permanent
  • Phthalo Blue
  • Light Olive Green
  • Mars Black
  • Burnt Umber
  • Unbleached Titanium


Acrylic Mushroom Painting or Water colored?

Aesthetic Painting ideas revolve from glitter markers to Acrylics, Watercolors, Oil Paints, and much more.

To give your Mushroom a realistic touch, we suggest using Acrylics, and if you want your Mushroom to be looked like an abstract Painting, then you should use Watercolors.

Guys here should clarify one point: Paintings of Mushroom gives you complete freedom from choosing a surface medium to paint media.

Wondering how? Head over to next.


Mushroom Painting on Wood vs. on Canvas

Painting ideas on Wood seems catchy, and a bit difficult, too; however, Canvas gives you a lot of space, a clear surface, and a broad view to play with colors and show your creative potential best.


Realistic Mushroom Painting- Process

Now, if we move towards the real game of painting of Mushroom, then please follow the steps below.


Painting Background

Place your canvas on a flat and calm surface, after which you should fill your palette with acrylic paint in the colors titanium white and phthalo blue using a 3/4″ flat wash brush.

Start painting the textured angle strokes, starting at the top and moving down the canvas with the 3/4′′ flat paintbrush dipped in phthalo blue.

Start texturing the strokes for your simple mushroom painting now, combining the titanium white and phthalo blue, so the blue grows lighter and lighter as you make your way down the canvas.


Painting the Ground

Give your palette more titanium white and the permanent hookers green (dark green) and light olive green (light green) hues. 


Mushroom House Painting 

Use the given template or lightly sketch the mushroom house with some chalk.

Draw the Mushroom’s base beginning at the bottom. The bottom should be big and long, while the top should be smaller.

Draw the chimney at 90 degrees and doodle a Mushroom top. 


Painting The Top White & Bottom of Mushroom

We advise painting the top of the mushroom white first, then, when it dries, painting the red over it to have good “coverage” with the red. 


Paint the Chimney and Grasses

On your palette, combine a small amount of titanium white with mars black to create a grey. The chimney pipe should be painted using a #4 round brush. Next, red paint the Mushroom’s top. For painting the grass, use a #8 round bush.


Paint Light & Windows

Use black and a #4 round brush and draw a line around the door outside. After that, paint the outline of the light to the door’s left. Paint the windows next.


Paint White Spots, Vine & Dandelion Stem

Apply titanium white using a #8 round brush. Paint the mushroom top with a variety of sized dots. On the smaller Mushroom on the chimney, draw the little dots. For the doorknob, paint a white circle.

Paint the stem with dark green and a #4 round brush. From the bottom of the grassy area to the top, draw a very loose line.


Outline Window Frames and Adding Fun Details 

With a tiny round brush, trace the window’s outside contours. Then, inside of each window, create a window frame.
