Paul Kratter: Mastering Trees

The title says it all! This video was designed with a very specific purpose — to help you master the art of painting trees. And we sought out an artist who has done beautiful paintings of just about every kind of tree on earth. Trees are Paul Kratter’s superpower.

Paul knows that when you’re painting trees, you’re really painting a portrait of that tree. Each tree is different … each has its own features and personality. And let’s face it, the trees have to be right or it can throw the whole painting off — the proportion, light, shadow, sky holes … it all has to be believable. And trees are a great compositional tool if you know how to use them to make your painting stronger.

  • How to take landscapes and trees from complicated to simple and logical (Paul has a system!)
  • Each tree is unique and has its own character — true in life, now true in your paintings!
  • The secret sauce to better sketches (and so much easier!)
  • You’re looking at this WRONG… now you’ll see more clearly!
