Easy Mixed Media Trees

Mixed Media Trees Mixed Media Trees

Another super duper easy lesson - could be Fall or Winter...

Using 9x12 white construction paper and watercolors, make a cool background. Color washes, wet on wet color, splatter, wet water drops, salt techniques...have fun with the background. I did one in warm and one in cool colors. I waited until they dried completely - the next day. And then I created a tree two different ways.

With this tree I just used black watercolor and a straw. I painted a trunk and then blew the rest of the paint to create the branches.

With this tree I just used a black sharpie. Easy and pretty cool looking if I do say so myself.
