Autumn may see the return of frosty mornings and long nights but with it also comes an array of breath-taking, fiery hues. As trees transform with a blaze of golden yellow, amber and scarlet leaves, landscapes glow with warmth on crisp autumnal days.
This autumn tree oil painting tutorial captures the season in all its glory. Abundant foliage in vivid orange hues, flames around the tree branches, while the bright blue sky and lush green grass provide a bright, contrasting backdrop. As a moderately simplistic landscape, this oil painting tutorial is ideal for beginners but also fantastic for more advanced artists who would like to practice colour mixing and techniques for painting realistic tree foliage.

In August 2019 Michael switched brush manufacturers and as a result the series numbers/names are different in some of the lessons. In order to be able to complete the lessons regardless of which set you’re using we have put together a chart which lists the equivalent brushes from both sets.
