How to Paint Eucalyptus Trees in Watercolour

Hi Folks,

I have just finished my demonstration on how to paint gum trees with watercolour.  In Australia you can’t paint landscapes without knowing how to paint eucalyptus trees.  We have many different types but I have settled on a light barked tree as they can be very impressive when done well.

My demo isn’t meant to be a full painting. I just wanted to put down all the steps, that I normally run through with my students, with enough detail that they can easily follow along with their own work.
