Sitges Palm Trees - How I paint Palm Trees

Sitges, Spain, 15" x 11"

My take on painting palm trees - keep it simple.  In fact they can be easier to paint in my opinion compared to broad leaf trees and conifers/pine.  Just a simple stroke to do the fronds with a very soft medium brush, one with a good point and water retention.  Also, try not to make them look too symmetrical!

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

This painting is for sale. Please contact Tim Wilmot for details.
