First is the blank canvas that we started with.
We filled in the hill with shades of black.
We then started adding the main tree trunk and branches.
Then we started adding the limbs, making sure that the limbs were smaller as they projected out.
I thought this painting was really good, and then the instructor told us to put brown over the entire painting. I wasn't sure that was going to look good, but it did!
Here is the final product!
So what do you think?
