Painting trees and foliage is a torment for beginner artists. Just the other day I was talking (online naturally) to an artist on this topic. She was struggling with how to paint trees and bushes. So often we cannot see the subtle nature of trees. Painting trees reminds me of painting portraits. There are as many, if not more, shape and color variations in a tree as compared to a human portrait.
So I created a full length painting demonstration that includes trees, bushes and light to help you with this subject.
The Painting Lesson
This painting tutorial is a bit different as it is a feature of about 56 minutes long. In it I paint one of many scenes that I love in the village of Greyton in the Western Cape. I painted it in one go and enjoyed it very much. It is one of those subjects you get into and it just keeps you involved. You can see the introduction here.
What You Will Learn
It it not just me painting away. I break from painting to also explain important techniques, give tips and try to be as useful with information as I can. I also give a detailed commentary throughout the painting too. Plus I have added the reference photo so that you can have a go at painting the scene too. I am quite confident that you will enjoy painting this one.
To sum up then you will learn:
You get permanent access to the lesson and updates. You can also join my painting community when you sign up and share your paintings there. There is a picture of the completed painting below.
You may be wondering how much the demonstration costs? It is only $25.00.
I hope that you will enjoy painting trees and light with me. View the painting lesson here.
Pin for later ...
