A Word From the Author:
"Just as the seasons change, so do the moods and colors of the trees. There is not one "perfect" medium or painting style with which to depict them. Therefore, within the pages of this book, you'll find leaf, limp and bark techniques in a variety of mediums and styles. Choose your favorite or broaden your horizons and try them all. If finding the perfect foliage and bark hue has caused you anxiety in the pas, the simplified color mixing charts included in each chapter and alongside each project will show you how to master the creation of color. I've heard it said that sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees, but by increasing your observation skills and simplifying what you see, you can learn to see both tree and forest clearly and paint them as well. I invite you to walk with me down the wooded path, through the seasons, and we'll share the adventure of drawing and painting trees." — Claudia Nice
Check out this Exclusive Tip From Drawing & Painting Trees in the Landscape:
Although simple in design, the pencil is a very versatile tool. By changing the shape of the point or the angle at which it is applied, you can create numerous line widths. To change the value from light to dark, you can choose a softer lead, apply more pressure or overlap the strokes. The illusion of texture is created by varying the pattern of the pencil strokes" Stroking with the pencil point provides narrow, precise lines, while using a chisel edge or the side of the pencil will create broad lines that are good for loose sketching or filling in.
