Get Inspired!

Sometimes when you paint something yummy, like this peach, the branch it hangs from can often be overlooked.

It’s the same when painting blossom.

But if you get it wrong, a badly executed branch can really detract from your otherwise-loved painting.

So in this video I wanted to show you how I painted this particular branch in lots of detail.

The branch is from this peach painting which I painted from my latest Craftsy class!

I hope it helps you get ALL of your painting looking good!

Happy painting,

    Thank you Anna – this is very useful – branches and twigs are so important and an area that I sometimes struggle with. The fruit looks very fluffy. Will look at craftsy site

    How long did it take for you to finish this piece?

  3. Very informative, as always. I enjoy adding branches and twigs but do struggle with them. I have thoroughly enjoyed your advice about painting lightest tones then darkest tones, an invaluable tip that has helped balance my paintings immensely. Thank you!

    Thank you Anna, this is very helpful. I always struggle with getting the right balance of tones in my branches and stems, so hopefully I can follow your tips and struggle no more.
