How To Paint An Autumn Tree

In this YouTube video, I’ll share my process for painting a photorealistic tree in an autumnal landscape scene.

I start this painting by blocking in, then I add colours and details to recreate the background of the reference photo I’m using.

Here, you’ll see the technique I use for painting individual leaves, from blocking in, layering different shades of oil using various brushes, to adding the final detail and definition to the leaves.

I hope that you enjoy this demonstration, and that it gives you an insight into my process for painting a photorealistic autumnal tree in oil.
