painting trees with a straw

Here it is. I used a straw to spread the paint every which way. I was careful to blend in yellow over blue to create beautiful shades of green. Then I used a brush to flatten the paint and add a little more texture.

I do love working with a straw as it creates sporadic beauty. But it takes time. The layers work best when you allow each layer to dry before applying the next color.
