Creative Ways To Paint Trees

For a while I’ll be painting what I love to paint, trees.

For this tree I used:

– artist tape, watercolor paint, a blush brush and tempera paint.

First I spot the tape in a tree shape.

Then paint. I think I now have an idea for a scribble tree created with white ink pens on kraft paper.

Last I added some bulbs and monotones of green seems like a good idea.

I like it. There’s lots more tree ideas to paint. I’ll be adding some of these to my shops as well. Tomorrow I’ll get up early and write.

Did Johnny Appleseed really wear a pan for a hat? What was it like to wander here and there for days, months and years all to plant seeds. He never gave up. I  doubt it was an easy breezy carefree journey. Why then do we give up so easily at the first sign of despair? Today I am working on a project for a wonderful cause and I hope I do well. Who am I kidding. I have tons of wonderful ideas. I’m so glad this tree is in the wise trees book.

notes:

  • the back of a bamboo brush works great as a stamp
  • a craft sponge brush too
  • oh maybe I should try using a soda cap to make a flower for my book
  • sounds good
  • anything that has a flat surface or not can be used as a stamp
  • test the paint and stamp first to get your desired texture
  • I love my color choice.
  • have nice contrast

 

Imagine all possibilities that are possible
