For this project, we painted a beautiful forest using tape to make the trees. This project is good for people with limited mobility. Some help may be needed in applying the tape, but painting the sky can be as free-form as the artist likes!
Here are the supplies needed: painter’s tape (multiple thicknesses if you would like different sized trees), watercolor paper, watercolor, a watercolor tray or bowl, a brush.
Step 1) Tape down your “trees” by taping straight across the paper. You can do different sizes if you have different sized tape. Ripping small lengths of tape to make “branches” off of the tree trunks can be a nice, added detail. Make sure the tape is pressed down and sticking.
Step 2) Wet your brush and watercolor, and brush it across the paper. You can use whatever colors you like to make the sky. Make sure that the sky is dark enough to see the white once the paint is removed, and cover the whole paper. Be careful not to get it too wet!
Step 3) Let the painting dry! Once it is completely dry, carefully remove the tape. Be gentle, otherwise you might rip your painting.
Step 4) Admire!
