US woods: a symbol of American biodiversity
Woodlands and forests are some of the most overlooked natural wonders of the world. The United States is home to the most spectacular woods on earth. Its vast stretches of land area harbor extraordinary wildlife that boasts of the country’s rich biodiversity.
Wildlife and nature enthusiasts will enjoy this Yosemite painting kit that captures the spirit of how rich and diverse the US land is. From the east to the west coast, arctic Alaska to humid Florida, you’ll find vastly varying environmental conditions all over the country. This range of climates has resulted in an extraordinary diversity of life.
The US flora and fauna make up one of the broadest arrays of ecosystems and vegetation on earth. Wild animals like deers, bears, and wolves walk those forests and they need to be protected to conserve the US biodiversity. The US ecosystem is one of the richest in the world, due to its size and all climates that can be found. Its biological wealth needs to be preserved as part of the World’s patrimony.
Yellow, green, orange, red, and pink: all forest colors
Forests during fall are nothing short of magical! The beautiful foliage of green as they turn into beautiful tones of yellow, orange, red, pink, and brown give forests a whimsical and mysterious look like this country lane canvas. It’s like painting with all the colors of the wind.
It’s kind of crazy to think that these trees’ leaves set fire with these stunning hues of pigment just as they are about to wilt and die. Have you ever thought of why endings, like fall and sunsets, give off the same color gradient? It’s almost like ending life with a bang. A grand, graceful exit as some would say.
Fall symbolizes hope, rejuvenation, and transformation. This Birch tree painting, for example, is a representation of the essence of trees and forests, alive and everchanging. Like the leaves and the forest, we all go through changes too. These changes are meant to prepare us for what’s about to come - winter. But once we get through the cold, we will come back alive and flourish once again. Life is a cycle. You just have to enjoy the journey.
How to paint a forest?
Painting a forest can be a daunting task for any artist. There are lots of visual elements that you must consider in this artwork. You should find and use the right color tones for the painting you have in mind.
Are you going to go for the lush green taiga with a clear blue-sky backdrop or the orange fall colors with a forest massif on the background? Texture, value, depth, and the right shading pattern are also things you need to think about to bring the paintings to life and create a sense of realism in them.
But painting a forest area or the edge of the woods doesn’t have to be all that intimidating. If you’re still looking at building that confidence to paint, paint by numbers is a great way to experiment with texture, understand how to create depth, and use different lightning values as a technique.
All you really have to do with the art kit is to color the numbered area using the brush and acrylic paint set that comes with the kit. Easy peasy! There’s no mixing needed with the paintings. You have all the colors you need. Plus, acrylic is a versatile medium. You can play with it more than you can with oil. And if starts drying up a bit, you can simply add a few drops of water or flow improver.
