here! I also participated in The Giving Tree Project. A boy named Isy is selling the trees to benefit an organization called Reach out and Read. I am finishing mine VERY late, but I hope that it can still get to Isy on time for his Bar Mitzvah! My tree is called- "Hepsiba's Hideout."
Doing this project made me realize a couple of things. First of all that I can still paint with acrylics. Second of all that I am glad that I usually don't paint with acrylics! I did have a fun time, but painting with acrylics takes so much time. Where's my layers pallettes? Where's my control+Z? Where's my textured brushes? Plus there was so much prep time every time I painted and I ran out of orange and there were no stores nearby that carried the kind I needed. Yes, this has really made me realized that I am very glad to be painting digitally now!
One other thing that I didn't anticipate in doing this project is how much time it takes to paint everything four times since it was three dimensional. I ended up eliminating a lot of details that I wanted to put in because of the time it took to do everything. But it was a fun project and I'm glad I participated!
