Spring time for the tree

With sping time here the tree stars to look a bit greener.
Extra branches, truck painted and foilage added.

And a close up of the tree trunk

I had several attempts at getting the colour on the tree right.
Initially I’d based it upon burnt umber but that was way too dark even mixing in white. 
It just ended up a muddy yucky colour.
So after a trip to Spotlight I picked up Jo Sonjas paint called Provincial Beige. 

Also to get a bit of variation in the colours of the leaves I painted a couple of bits with the el cheap'o Heriatge Green spray paint before applying it to the tree.

I'm very happy with the results. :)



  1. That tree is looking really good Tess.

  2. Thanks PK. The photos just don't do it justice. It looks much better in person. Hopefully the 2013 Toowoomba Show I'll be able to attend and you'll be able to see it for yourself.
