For my students who are working on painting trees, here's a great video resource online.
Sheldon Borenstein demonstrates how to paint an oak tree, a palm tree, and a group of trees, in his Youtube video How to Paint Trees.

He develops it a little further in How to Paint Branches. They're short, succinct lessons that I think you'd find helpful.
Alfredo Tofanelli's painting Light Play,
and his show at the Napa Valley Museum Spotlight Gallery
through the end of September
Henry Hensche's landscape painting Ada and Wags
If this palette looks familiar to you, then you may have seen the paintings of Camille Przwodek, a well-known student of Henry Hensche, who lives and works in Petaluma, California, and with whom Tofanelli studied. It's a four-hour workshop for $60, and should be well worth it. Reservations are required, so give the museum a call at (707) 944-0500.
