Watercolor Painting Video: How to Paint Trees in a Landscape

Learn how to create trees in the distance in a landscape watercolor painting.


Learn how to paint trees in a landscape using ultramarine blue, burnt umber, and yellow ocher. The watercolor is painted using a no. 10 round brush and a rigger brush, which is ideal for creating thin branches and twigs. The trees are painted as if they're in the distance, rather than close up. (Note: You'll need to turn the sound up quite a bit to hear the narration, but I think it's well worth it. Just remember to turn it down again when you're finished watching.)
