Weekend painting – more trees


Inspired by Tom Lynch’s impressive tree skills (very handy as he seems to have a lot of golf course commissions) I tried out a 1″ flat brush, a new rigger brush and some splattering.  Pretty successful and not a lollipop in sight.


I’ve been looking around this week and have become preoccupied with tree shapes.   If you actually pay attention to the tree structure the underlying branches are much  more visible that I previously thought.

For example here.  Branches are visible, especially towards the bottom of the tree and in the middle.   These branch additions using the rigger seem vital if you want to capture the ‘treeness’ of trees.

Okay.  Not all trees turn out so good.
