In this first chapter we mix our base colours and start to block in the sky area. Simple brush and paper tricks are shown for creating subtle cloud lines.
In this part we block in our treelike and start with our simple shape to start creating some form.

In this section we continue to break down the coniferous trees section by section through painting initial shape and form.
