In this video, I take you through the exciting process of creating a large vertical painting on a 4×8 canvas. I start with chalk sketches, then block in shapes with burgundy paint and use Prussian blue for dark branches and negative spaces. You’ll see me build up the trunks and background, discussing the importance of varied shapes, contrast, and value to guide the viewer’s eye. This is just the beginning—watch as the painting starts to come to life!
