This painting was a struggle! I was painting the tree for a Patreon video so once I started I didn't want to stop. I thought it would be easy to just adjust things as I painted. It wasn't that easy! There are two important lessons here...... 1. Always start with a plan and make sure your initial drawing or placement of shapes is correct. 2. Don't give up and don't make the painting precious. A painting rarely comes together perfectly without some kind of struggle. Sometimes art videos make it seem like there is never a struggle but the struggle is real.

In this video I work through the problem of a poorly placed tree and bad trunk. This is one of my weekly video demos that I share on my Patreon Page. I want to share the video here with my blog readers because it has such valuable lessons. Click on the link below to see the video on YouTube.
