While that dried, I painted a layer of Gesso over my canvas panel.
For the trees, I cut 2 strips of white cardstock the length of the canvas then took Chalkboard Paint to the edge of a plastic card, pulling the color from one side and adding lines for a cool tree-like effect. It was so fun to watch the trees come alive with just a few swipes of black and white paint--I'll be using this one again!
Next, I colored the entire background with Snow Cone Gelatos® Double Scoop® then blended it with my finger.
Now I came back to the trees and added a wash of Gesso over some areas to create more interest and texture. I think they look a bit like a White Birch tree which I like for a winter scene!
Next, I cut out my bird parts and arranged them out on the canvas with the trees, then adhered everything down with a layer of Gel Medium.
I added random branches and my bird's eye with the Bold/Black PITT® Artist Pen
Finally, I added highlights with the Coconut Gelatos® Double Scoop®
