Tween Tree Mural on Wall

This mural was free-handed on the wall in chalk for a 12-year old girl. The entire mural took about 4 hours.

Chalk sketches on the wall.  Wipe off the branches if you want to make changes to the composition.

Check out Donna Dewberry’s One Stroke method of painting, if you need help in the leaf department.  That is an easy way to create beautifully shaded leaves!
