Post by: Maryna on April 25, 2012, 08:03:12 AM
Thank you for the great class Nolan.

I did not finish watching the painting process due me being so  :sleep: sorry - been a hectic day.

Can't wait for the replay and put my clouds, mountain and tree painting together.  ;)

I really enjoyed the class too .... it inspired me to have a go at a landscape in watersoluble oils.  It's the first time I've used them so they took a bit of getting used to, I still managed to get my background trees to look like lollipops though  :D

I like that Anita  :clap: You can always go back and adjust the shapes of the trees, so not a problem. I do suggest a greener colour wash over the back trees so they stand out a bit more from the mountains. I really love your infused light effect on the front tree  :yippee: Then you can also darken the shadow on the ground for the front tree, especially against the tree. It will help to ground it O0

Will you post a new pic if you do some changes?  I'd love to see it and it would help us all to learn.   :)

Hi all

Thanks for all your lovely comments.

I was surprised today how easy it was to try and fix things a bit, I'm definately warming to these oils  .... I fear another visit to the art shop is looming  :help:


Close up the painting looks a bit blugh ... but from hanging distance it actually looks quite sweet so I am pleased with it.

Nolan-just finished the replay, missed the original.  The info was great and presented so clearly.  I hope to improve my tree rendering with this video.  Curious as to what is the difference between a dab and a tap?  Seems kind likeof  the same stroke, not sure how it varies. I hope some time in the future you will be able to look at a few more trees, perhaps with leaves a little more close up.  Thanks again

Okay, where to begin....first this canvas is wavy and I am waiting for stretcher keys but decided to continue with the painting.  After watching Nolan's continuation of the landscape, I realized my mountains were way too large to accommodate his building and foreground. :o  So I did the trees and put in my own foreground as best I could muster.   :thumbdown: This course is intense, with lots to learn and now I will try doing better trees and mixing more realistic colors for them.  This is challenging but I am really having fun....Here is my attempt:


I will start from the beginning again another painting.... :crazy2: To be continued......

I appreciate the compliments Patricia.  Thank you.  This  did not come close to what Nolan was painting though and since I already made a big goof with making my mountains too large I thought I would just leave it as trees and mountains.  His landscape has a building and is so nice.  But, I will try it again.

I finally was able to get this canvas re-stretched and then I added birds and a few other little touches.  I was pleased to find a product called Tight N Up and that took care of the looseness in this canvas.  It worked like a charm! 


Today I thought I would practice doing some more tree

Nice work, Mary Lou. Love your trees and the color combination.

Thanks for the tip about strengthening the canvas.

Hmmm... trees are a weakness of mine, so I may do a couple for my 30 minute practice tomorrow.

Post by: njnjgirl on March 23, 2014, 02:16:55 PM
Thanks Mea...That product was a life saver.  I couldn't use the keys as the slits in the stretcher bars were too narrow.  I don't have a wood plane to make the keys smaller, so I looked on the internet and found this product.  It was absolutely amazing how quickly it tightened the canvas.  It is supposed to be archival in nature too which is great.

the secret to painting trees that look good is to give them depth and an overall shading - they must look round by being lighter on one side and darker on the other - like a tube or ball would be, except it is not smooth, but made up of humps and bumps O0
Title: Re: 14 - Landscapes 4 - Trees
Post by: MaryAnne Long on August 02, 2014, 07:29:31 AM
Well, I think I have to watch the entire tree class over again.

This practice painting came out really bad.  I tried to give myself a quick background so did a blue acrylic sky on canvas paper.  It went downhill from there.


This is actually the best tree (except for palms) I have ever painted, so you can imagine how bad the others were.

Please confirm my suspicions and let me know all the things wrong with it and how to make it look better.

Dear Mea Hamo Pena:

Lovely tree.   I suspect the light is coming from the right,
as I can see a slight shadow under the tree on the left.

If so, the leaves to the right could have a few variations of greens;
lighter at the tips and gradually darkening as you come to the left side.
 
Also, darkening the underside of the tree as it gets closer to the ground. 

Just a few thoughts.    :painting:

Vjah,

Your trees painting has set you off in the right direction and it also helped me, too.

Trees have always been difficult for me, so I decided to go back and review that lesson - Oil Landscape - Trees . 

Also, I wanted to do a small painting inspired by a Christmas gift my son gave me, a book called Daily Painting by Carol Marine.

Here's what I did last night.  Seems almost a bit monochromatic - there is no sky because I was just focusing on the greenery.  I used Nolan's technique with the paint knife to position the treelines.

Your thoughts, please.

 :wave: Mea,

Sorry about the late reply.  :thankyou: for your warm words.   I did the same thing when I was practicing. It looked monochromatic and since I prefer to blend so much ;D , it just look like unrecognizable green puddle.

I made 2 mixes of green at different values: one with cool blue and one with yellow orange

Here's what I learned:

Cool colors recede to background.
Warm colors tend to go forward.

I just experimented with sizes/height  taking care of perspective. Farthest trees, don't stress over details but use greyer green(low chroma) and contrast at least 2 value steps so it wont look just a puddle ;D . The closer trees get the details, as Nolan covered.

On single tree, it looks like the sun is coming from left basing on the tree shadow but there's also light on right.

Divide your tree, left side and right side. Now this is awesome and got me excited. Cover the left side for a moment. If you flip the light source to right instead, it looks so real :heeha: . The highlights look like its shimmering off the tree.

This is so wonderful Mea :clap: .

you have done a great job with the trees Annie :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
just be careful with the groupings - the back trees all grow rows at the moment - vary those shapes a little so they grow in clumps O0

Cyril,

Your work gets better with each painting.  Landscape work is your specialty!! Great trees, mountains, clouds.

your trees look great - you have good contrast between light and dark, which is the big secret :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I especially like your second study - add a few birds in the sky and it will be a complete painting O0
