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.
This is my book cover. This is simple but it conveys the essence of my book. I love nature and that’s just it, when I am in nature I experience love.
There’s always this voice that tells me I am and I can…
wait that was a tree I painted with a straw.
Ok now it’s time to write a description of my book. As I come to the final stages of publishing my book, I’m a little scared. I’m a lot scared. I’m excited because a few people want to read it. I’ll take that! More will follow and heck I love Wise Trees too! OK for real it’s time to get workin on my book description…
This was hands down my most favorite tree to paint. I’m not too crazy about the trunk but the circle leaves, what a shape. All I needed was a cork and some blue and yellow tempera paint. The color combination is right on. I smile and think of Eric Carle.
