Gum Trees and PTSD

PTSD, or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder is way more common than most people realise. But is it a form of extreme anxiety and what exactly is it? I talk about this in my latest video while I explore a couple of new techniques painting my first Australian Gum Tree scene.

Take a look at Lend Hend’s channel:

I’m a South African artist currently living in Australia and have been painting since 2015. I am learning as I go and all my paintings are inspired by nature, memories of Africa and experiences in Australia. I primarily work with acrylic paint and enjoy painting on both canvas and paper. I also enjoy discussing things while I paint as I am a trained therapist.

Thank you so much for watching my video and I hope you enjoyed it!

Be sure to follow and subscribe to my channel as I’m planning on adding new videos weekly.
