April Calendar

April calendar challenge:
This is my altered calendar page for Darcy's calendar challenge.
This month we had to use a repeating shape or repeating words. I have repeating lines which form repeating tree trunks. Also we needed to use splatters or drips and I have done this for the foliage.

I forgot to take a photo of the original page. It is of Poultry Yard at Gartosh, by John Quinton Pringle,

I meant to document my process, but only managed to do the first step, then I guess I got in the zone and just continued painting. First I covered some of the painting with gesso, leaving some ungessoed parts for tree trunks.

Here you can see some of the original tree trunks showing through and some splatters of paint.

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
