This is my first attempt at painting a tree. I decided that I should start painting landscapes and thought that this would be a good start. It’s more of a study and not how I want my trees to look. I guess that I will also paint them a bit further in the distance too. I’m not happy with them dark background to the canopy of the tree and think I might paint that a bit more in the style I have used for the lighter parts of the tree. I will also paint the background in sky blue first. It was a worthy exercise, just to work out how I want trees to look in future paintings.
