Strong Roots

Wise trees book

This week I spent a good deal removing backgrounds from the trees paintings. Only  to realize I did it wrong. I was frustrated and then something happened. I kept going and redid all the PNG images… ALMOST ready to look at the final book layout. When I say final I mean the first round the of the whole book put together for the first time. This tree about sums up my experience. You’ve got to have strong roots.

notes:

  • use an angled brush
  • mix various tones of green
  • use a mix of dry brush and wet on wet painting to get awesome tree textures
  • apply paint in a dab and press motion
  • paint here and paint there and paint until it feels right
  • don’t focus on one spot at the same time

-Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
