Abstract Birch Trees using tape as a mask before painting with water color.

Cardinals on birch trees. Mask off trees and limbs with blue tape. Demonstrate how to draw cardinals and cover with masking fluid. Paint over all with dark blue/purple watercolor paint. Remove mask and tape and add color to birds and lines for bark (we used watercolor pencils). White tempera for snow. Tip - use the tip of the paintbrush handle for snow. Jennifer Behymer

a faithful attempt: artist Gustav Klimt. using masking tape and watercolor, create your own version of the birch trees

Did this project with the kids - didn't use tape to create the trees, though. Instead we cover a white paper with lines of black paint, then cut out the trunks randomly from the page. Used a spray bottle filled with white paint and water to create the snow effect.

awesome birch trees...using separate strips of paper for the trees, rather than using tape to mask them off...looks fun :) Tissue paper sky...adhere with modge podge
