Beading & Painting

This is my beaded project based on an article I saw in Quilting Arts magazine.  The background is silk habotai, spritzed with water, and painted with dyna-flow paints which cause the mottle appearance.  The darker bushes are where the green was painted over the blue.   I painted the tree based on a photo of a tree I took on a walk and then added a gazillion beads to show the leaves.
