Tree by grobles63 Tree by grobles63
This was one of the first paintings I did when I moved into a new neighborhood. Theres a parkway there with lots of trees and park benches. I posted this and others on my blog [link]
Water color on traditional cold pressed paper.

This is an amazing painting, technique-wise. Your watercolor skills are amazing - I could see it as an illustration in almost any kind of context. You've really spent a lot of time on the details, and it makes this shine. A tree isn't of itself a particularly compelling subject, but all the rich details you added to this one make it extremely interesting to look at. The leaves, the grass, the bark... as far as I can tell, it's all impeccable. It really brings the tree to life.

Because of all the visual interest in the tree it is probably fine as a stand alone piece, but I personally would love to see something in the background even if it's just a sky.
What do you think?

I need help painting a tree for a school project and need help with getting the bark to look like this. Did you use any tutorials for this or at least know of any that I could use?

I had spent many years studying how to paint from life. This tree was in a parkway near my home. I went outside made some sketches, took a picture and went home and painted this based on observation and the photos I used for reference. The best thing I could tell you is to do your best to paint what you see.
