    How do i do this?

    I wonder how (or if...) it is possible to paint bark on the tree?

    What type of tree are you painting and in what type of style are you painting it in? The methods you use, will be determined by the style you wish to achieve.

    An easy trick is to first paint a silhouette of the tree. Then, change the layers texture settings to use 100% roughness, and use the Chalk tool, set to low pressure, to add a texture over the silhouette, creating the illusion of bark. This was done for the image below.

    This is how I create the texture for bark such as oak on the iPad. I used this method in the painting of the grey squirrel.
    1. Paint tube
    2. Palette knife with the setting on the screen.

    Followed some advice about tree barks i thought give it a try
    The big tree is following +- the advice of SOS but i think i must have done something wrong there?

    The little piece follows +- the advice of Saphire with the paint tube and knife palette

    I am not quite sure what you mean, do you want to import an image? if you do it would have no depth and would just be a photo layer and look flat. The only way I can produce texture on the iPad is with the paint tube and palette knife because the layers don't work the same as on the PC version. If there is another method then I would love to find out how to it.

    We were both replying at the same time. The small trunk looks brilliant, well done, with practice and playing about with the paint tube and palette knife gives some interesting effects. The large tree to me looks flat and un-interesting apart from shape.
