painting the contour of the tree


New Member
I have a sentence that I need help with:
Its branches had diffused the light, painting the contour of the tree and allowing me to understand the little words in my book.

(...) peignant le contour de l’arbre (...)

I think the part (...) sounds wrong but I am not sure how to fix it. More specifically what form of peindre to use to indicate "painting."

    OK It's becoming late, so this is my last try (for the day)
    Ses branches, en diffusant la lumière, teintaient le contour de l'arbre, et soudain tous les petits mots de mon livre devenaient clairs dans mon esprit.
