Birch trees

I have finally finished this painting for our daughter. The colors will match the room it is going in. I used oils on the first stage of this painting so I would have plenty of time to work in the colors I wanted. The size is 4'x2'. So it is a lg painting.


Then I used acyrlics for all the rest which is suppose to be a big no no. But I am sorry it worked for me. So I started to lay in the trees, Soften the mts, and put in the grasses. Oils take to long to dry for me and I don't like the smell of them. I like acrylics the best and you can even get a watercolor effect with them when you want to.

Then I started to work on the details of the trees and grasses.
And this is the finished pictures. I could stare at it and still see things I could do. But there is a time to call it good so I did. Then I sprayed a matte finish on it.

With Love to you Karen, from Mom. Hope you enjoy it!
