Pine trees in oil?

How do you go about painting your basic pine tree in oil? I've always struggled with this. I'm not sure which type of brush to use for them and also, I don't know whether I should paint wet into wet or do the different tree colors in stages.

Whats your method?

Re: Pine trees in oil?

There are so many different ways to do a tree..

I'd watch many videos and do some small sample studies to see which way is best for you..

Is it a specific Pine tree type?

I use flat brushes for any tree, foliage, or flowers that have spiky or straight components and rounds for any with curved edges. Either wet in wet or stage painting will work fine, depending on how detailed or realistic your work is.

Hi Crackers. I'm not an oil painter, so I can't offer much advice. You've gotten some good thoughts on this topic so far. You may also find it helpful to post this question over in the Landscapes forum:

I hope you find the answers you're looking for.

Jenna's link reminded me of the Homework classes here- This does cover all trees, so you might need to scroll through them to find Pines.
