CHICKADEE ON MAPLE LEAF
The Maple Leaf will be furnished.
The palette will be prepare for you at a minimal fee of $3. Several members donated oil tubes to the chapter for this project and I thank them for their generosity. If you prefer, you can bring your own oil paint. The brushes are a reference and you can use yours. They are flat brushes but with shorter hair.
The leaves were taking on the ground of a small Chapel in Saint-Sauveur, Québec, Canada from the same tree. So they are all look alike color wise. I did soak them in glycerin and dry them in between newspaper pages for 4 months.
I hope you will have fun painting on this surface. See you at the meeting.
