How to Paint WATER, TREES and MOUNTAINS
In this video I show you how to paint water, trees and mountains. The painting depicts a very familiar view in Queenstown, New Zealand and the view features willow trees growing on the foreshore of Lake Wakatipu, with The Remarkables Mountains in the background.
This painting was a commission and as the view is so well known in Queenstown, I was limited on being able to change the landscape to improve the composition. However I looked at some old 19th century paintings and got some composition ideas from them.
I painted this art work in oils but you can also use acrylics as the principles of colour and tone are exactly the same.
In the video I will explain the following:
2. Colours and brushes
3. Blocking in the painting
4. Tips on painting water, trees and mountains
5. Adding final details
