This is not so much a book about how to paint trees, as how to paint scenes with trees in them, and it's all the better for that.

The book comprises no fewer than 24 different scenes, each with an outline tracing and a double-page spread showing the completed work along with notes on the colours used and how some of the specific details were handled. It's a series of ideas rather than a set of exercises to complete and, as such, more suited to those with some experience of the medium.

Geoff has chosen an excellent variety of subjects from the stark shapes of a winter morning's walk to the dappled shade of a woodland in spring, from the warm afternoon sunshine of a Manhattan park to the chilly afterglow of a midwinter evening.

In the accompanying DVD Geoff takes you through the hints and tips which will help you complete the 24 paintings from the book.

He shows you how to tackle a wide range of exciting projects such as how to paint convincing looking reflections in the water, rustic foliage on an autumn willow tree, how to create perspective and scale by adding figures to the landscape and how you can splatter masking fluid to create lively looking fountains.

With Geoff as your guide this excellent book & DVD set is sure to put a spring in your step and you'll realise that learning to paint is easier than you think.

    I\'ve yet to paint from this, but am enjoying reading the book. I find the illustrations and explanations very clear, especially for those little details which I like in Geoff Kersey\'s paintings. (Posted on 28/09/2012)
