OSWOA - Blue Pine

One of the nice things about using the 4" x 6" paper for experimenting with sponges, different brushes, cheese cloth, plastic wrap and new colours of paint is that it doesn't take long to work up and you can see the results fairly quickly.

Then if it works you have a small painting as a reference piece for the future.

Using French ultramarine blue and a sponge I painted in shapes of pine needles in random patterns.

With a brush and the blue I added a tree trunk and some branches to connect the shapes.

To finish it I added a ground line and some growies.
