I love our local trees, and we’re on pussywillow watch around here as we wait for the first signs of actual spring to appear (as opposed to the spring we’ve been pretending to have for the last few weeks. It’s snowing today.). Our local trees consist mainly of aspen or poplar, willow and evergreen trees like spruce, pine and larch (tamarack). So it felt right to work up a little video tutorial on how I paint these local beauties.
The video is in two parts. Part one is all about the greens – summer trees, both deciduous and coniferous:
And part two covers winter & autumn in all the colours of the spectrum. Enjoy!
