Drawing and Painting winter trees @ WBCL
Winter trees are always interesting to draw and paint. This is a project where I get the kids to follow along with me and then they embellish it on their own. We have many shrubs in our neighborhood that are covered with red berries in the winter time. We used a limited number of colors of paint for this and I had the kids draw the trees first then shade along the edge of the side of the tree and the branches and go back and paint them with the lighter shade of brown add some leaves and then use the back end of the paintbrush to add the red berries.
