Finished Painting

This painting included one of my most complicated backgrounds. Leaves are always something I have found difficult and I’ve never been a fan of painting trees. So in this series I talk you through my thought process and how I tackle elements that I find more difficult.

I also talk about how I pieced this composition together from several photographs and imagination to create something that is more than just a copy of a photo.

I have lots of tutorials about animals, but in this series I really aim to give you the tools to tackle landscape backgrounds with confidence.
