Beautiful birch trees! My favourite trees!
I love them especially in the fall when the leaves turn a bright yellow.
Students created these stunning birch tree paintings using tape and acrylics.
They used two different sized widths of masking tape to lay down trees on heavy white paper.
They 'linted' the tape on their clothes first to take off the excess stickiness. Then they painted over the whole thing with a shade of blue or turquoise.
They added some 'dead grass' at the bottom.
Then carefully peeled off the tape.
The next class they painted the bark texture using a dry brush technique and
added some black and white branches.
Then, using a round bristle brush, they dabbed on two shades of yellow for the leaves.
