Left Chart- Trunks and limbs
Right Chart- Canopy
Notes From My Tree Painting Journal
Today I worked on some charts for my workshop on Saturday this week. One of the things we won't have time for is chart making, so I think I will want to hang these charts in the studio for my students to see how I do basic color mixes for tree paintings. I have a chart book full of charts for mixing landscape paintings but I wanted to simplify a bit, particularly on the greens. I have a seven color palette for the greens and an 8 color palette for limbs and trunks. Of course some of those trunk and limb colors will work for fall and winter trees too.
