It may be early but I’ve been thinking about Christmas. I decided try another version of a block tree painting this year. Hope you enjoy seeing my process.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
I pulled out my stash of washi tape and blocked off a triangle tree shape. My process photos were taken in the evening as I worked so the quality is not great, sorry about that.
I used a narrow tape for the diagonal lines. What I love about the tape (besides the fact that it’s so pretty) is that it’s not too sticky and I was able to adjust the placement multiple times without damaging the paper.
I used just two colors for this painting: Undersea green and Prussian blue
My tools used: Round #6 brush, a cut up credit card , and a ruler
I simply wet the paper with a little clean water using diagonal strokes. I mostly painted with the credit card dragging paint in various directions. Using the brush I was able to get paint into the corners and fill in around the edges.
The final reveal after removing the tape… (the most exciting part!)
I’m pretty excited with the result. I really love the bold color and simple design. I think this will make a lovely card.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
