‘Sherwood Forest & The Major Oak with Fallen Silver Birch in A Stunning Winter Setting in Watercolours
Famous for many years the Major Oak has become a symbol for Sherwood Forest, let Matthew show you how to capture it in all it’s glory standing in the forest surrounded by other trees and a fallen silver birch.
This painting uses a variety of techniques, developed by Matthew, which will help to further improve your watercolour skills, suitable for beginners and more experienced painters.
