Tree Canvas Paintings

Tree canvas paintings can be a great way to explore landscape compositions. From a distance, large numbers of trees unite into solid shapes that anchor your painting. They also provide a good opportunity to study changes in perspective.

Mixing greens can be one of the most challenging parts of landscape painting. But there are surprisingly subtle colors that can work well in greens.

Painting trees involves a lot of color mixing and rendering of branches. You want to focus on a few key shapes and then fill in the details based on your vision. The more detailed a tree is, the more time it takes to paint.

A feature tree will require more detail and subtle color changes than a background tree. For example, Claude Monet intricately rendered the amber tree in Oak on the River Bank, while his other trees are simple two-value shapes.

You’ll also need to consider the atmospheric influence on the colors of your tree leaves and trunk. Bright sunshine, a setting or rising sun, dusk or moonlight can all affect the colors and shadows of your canvas painting.

Another important consideration is the type of surface you’re using. You can use stretched canvas, or you can choose to paint on panels. Panels are a good option because they’re more rigid and not subject to the movement that can cause cracking on stretched canvas. They are typically made from wood, medium-density fiberboard or acid-free hardboard and come either pre-primed or unprimed.

Our tree wall art comes on canvas with the option to dress it up with a custom-crafted frame or left as is for an artistic look. The gallery-quality museum canvas is made of a cotton-poly blend and is hand-stretched over pine stretcher bars.

Canvas fabric is often coated with gesso to prepare it for painting. Gesso is typically a mix of traditional, natural materials such as rabbit skin glue and linseed oil, or a synthetic alternative.

Using a variety of shades of green is important when painting trees. A palette of ultramarine blue or phthalo blue, cadmium yellow light, burnt umber and white plus alizarian crimson and black will give you a range of colors to work with. For a darker shade, try mixing in a little brown into your greens. This will add depth to your tree paintings and create a more realistic look.

Trees are a prominent feature of many landscapes. They are a source of natural serenity and can bring your home or office closer to nature. They can also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the space.

Our tree canvas paintings offer you a chance to decorate your walls with nature’s splendor. Whether you want to celebrate autumn leaves or the icy beauty of snow-covered trees, we have a wide range of images for your consideration. You can even choose a tree painting with shades or pure colors like yellow, white, blue and golden to make your home sweet home more attractive.

The symbolism of a tree canvas painting is vast and can mean anything you or the artist want it to. It can represent the union of heaven and earth, the changing seasons, or eternal renewal. It could also be a reference to the biblical story of Adam and Eve (apple tree) or a fear of the unknown (dark forest). You can explore all of these ideas by choosing a painting that has a theme of interest to you.
