Fall Trees gone Turquoise

Some friends invited me along with them to an open painting & wine session at a local painting store. It was a blast! Especially for my first time. 


Since it was open paint we could pick any design we wanted and paint away. It was fun to see each person's unique take on the same idea. Here is my friends and I next to our finished paintings. 


The recommendation was the royal blue background but my blood runs turquoise. Very happy with the finished colors.  



Given that this was the first time for me and there was no direct instruction I am very pleased with how this turned out. It was fun to experiment mixing the colors and layering them on. 


Totally love how the trees turned out. 


It is currently hanging in our dining room. 
Love how it looks against the Chocolate Sparkle color of our accent wall. 


I would definitely do this again!
