Cheryl Paints a Winter Birch Tree and Cardinal Painting in Acrylic

Hi Guys!

In this class we will complete a painting on canvas with acrylic paint. The painting we are creating this time is a winter scene featuring birch trees and a sweet cardinal. I will lead you in a step by step method and guide you through the entire process. I will show you exactly what supplies I use where to find them. Don't worry if you have never painted before or think you can't draw.This class is for you! I will attach the drawing of the cardinal and show you how to trace it on your canvas. The background and tress are easy and I will have you painting birch trees in no time!

My new Channel will focus on teaching beginners acrylic painting. In each lesson we will complete a painting on canvas. I can't wait to share my tips and techniques for painting with everyone but especially excited to help those who think they can't paint. The Skillshare method of breaking up lessons into bite sized segments work perfectly with my method of teaching. I have many proven paintings that I have led students through and I'm choosing my most popular pieces for the lessons.

My first class will be "Birch Trees and Cardinal Painting for Absolute Beginners". Here is a link to my class outline.
