I find it very interesting to see my paintings of trees since 2006. This is not something I have ever focused on exclusively though there are a few stand alone tree digital Paintings. Some of the trees simply exist within the context of a painting but they are so varied, I thought I would put this group together to share with you. The variety of styles in which I paint is amazing – even to me.
My very first digital painting is a girl in a swing in a tree created in 2006 after my first Painter digital painting workshop. I am certainly not bragging about it’s sophistication but I still enjoy it. I managed to use vibrant complimentary colors and to inject energy movement, texture and fun.

Painting using photo reference created in Photoshop. When I saw the giant dogwood in bloom in Manhasset NY, I knew this was the spot.
A 300 year old Oak tree was the reference image for this commissioned painting also painted in Photoshop.
