#311- THE TREES THROUGH THE FOREST

#311- The TREE THROUGH THE FOREST (3)

Almost there on this piece…I have a little character to add tomorrow.

#311- The TREE THROUGH THE FOREST (1)

Today was spent completing the tree stamps.

I also added another layer to the background of the forest.

After that, I began to add the colorful top layer of trees. I wanted the look of a complicated, entangled mesh of trees; a thicket I guess.

It was tough, by the time I painted one end of these 18 inch stamps, the other end was dry.  I had to work super fast!

Tomorrow I will add the finishing touches and explain what this painting is about.

Thanks for bearing with me!

  1. I love this! Are the stamps made from cardboard and foam? It looks really fun. Also, I’m not sure what kind of paint you’re using, but for acrylics there’s a thing called “retarder gel” or “retarder medium” that you can add to your paint to keep it from drying quickly.
