How to Paint TREE TRUNKS and FOLIAGE - Tips For Painting Trees, Vegetation and Water

in #art11 months ago

In this video I will show you how to paint tree trunks, vegetation and water. I also give you tips of painting landscapes in general including colour mixing and painting tonality.

This painting is inspired by the Bay of Islands area of New Zealand and originally started as a plein air painting, then I added more detail to it in the studio.

The first half of this video is of me painting this art work outdoors en plein air. In the second half of this video I am back in my studio where I add details to my painting.

I painted this art work in oils. The colours I used in this painting are listed below:

  1. Titanium white
  2. Burnt sienna
  3. Yellow oxide (you can also use yellow ochre instead)
  4. Cadmium yellow
  5. Cadmium orange
  6. Quinacridone magenta
  7. Ultramarine blue
  8. Cobalt teal
  9. Phthalo green
