Acrylic Tree Silhouette

"Almost like black laceā€¦" Bare trees in a winter sunset have majestic beauty. We get to see their unique structure, usually hidden by summer foliage and their branches resemble delicate black lace. Create one of these lovely silhouettes in the Acrylic Tree Silhouette class. You will choose a color scheme for your piece, and learn how to mix/blend colors on a 11x14, ready-to-hang canvas. You will complete this painting by adding a winter tree on top of the background, and add various other embellishments if desired. No experience necessary. A fun night out with friends! We bring the supplies!
