Oil painting basics for beginners: A better way to paint trees

If you paint landscapes chances are you paint trees. For some funny reason I see trees painted the same way over and over so I decided to make a video on how I paint trees. I think this will clear up a lot of questions on trees.

Hi, I am the son of two artists and began painting in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia before I could walk. I was a rare combination of artist and athlete so I moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to play football for USC. I left the team my sophomore year to focus on painting and filmmaking, applying the same focus and discipline from my football career to my art. I primarily work in oils, and spend most free days painting “en plein air” in my new home of Sarasota Florida.
