Nearly every artist who paints landscapes, whether on location or in the studio, has probably experienced trouble when trying to bring the beauty of trees, bushes, plants, and other foliage into their paintings.
If you struggle to paint realistic trees, bushes, and other plant life in your landscapes, you’re not alone! Even the most successful painters can find foliage to be a bit elusive. The shape, texture, and especially the light and shadows can be a source of frustration for even the most confident artists.
There’s nothing more disappointing than having a vision of what you want your paintings to look like, but being unable to reproduce the image in your mind on your canvas — ending up with trees that float above the ground or look as though they’re just hanging from the sky, shadows that resemble black stripes, and sunlight that does nothing to capture the eyes of those looking at your artwork.
Whether trees are the main focus or just one of several components in your painting, planning the role they will play is critical so you don’t end up creating something that is too busy and doesn’t create a natural rhythm … a rhythm that guides your viewers through the painting so they can see all you want them to see.
The core skill of painting trees can now be yours when you take advantage of this great new video we have for you.
In this new instructional video, you can paint right along with Bob as he leads you through each step of painting a beautiful grove of aspens. You’ll be delighted to see how simple it is to add just the right touches that will make a tremendous difference in your own paintings.
Right at the beginning of the demonstration, Bob will show you the painting he endeavors to improve upon. To most eyes, the original painting looks pretty good … but wait until Bob tells you what just isn’t right with it … the rhythm, the values, and the sunlight.
And then Bob sets out on a journey to share with you all he’s learned about painting trees through his years as an artist — revealing the surprising colors and values you wouldn’t otherwise see … the elements that make a true difference in how the trees look and feel in your paintings.
As the painting progresses, you’ll have many “a-ha” moments as you begin to see new and different features, patterns, and colors. You may even be a bit surprised when Bob brings in a color that you may never have used, provoking the thought, “So that’s how the best of the best do it!”
As he goes along, Bob continues to provide his wisdom:
Bob is the author ofThe Painterly Approach and has been featured in many art magazines such asSouthwest Art, American Artist, andThe Pastel Journal. His artwork is featured in six different galleries, so you know you’ll be learning from someone who has gotten this just right.
