Lesson No.11 - The "Renoir Technique" For Painting Trees
We painted in the large tree in front of the shed starting with darks and working our way towards the light. We used a Renoir effect on the leaves - dabbing this way and that - with a loaded soft brush. It was fun to go crazy. The foreground grass was flicked over the cow's legs (basically to hide any imperfections as their legs were tricky to paint). All we need now is a signature!
