There are few things as beautiful as trees in nature. They contribute to our health and survival by preserving the air quality and providing shady places to rest. Children love to draw houses with doors and windows, a gabled roof, and trees. However, what makes architects different from the general public is that they continue to draw after childhood, usually with a bit more technical proficiency. We also needed to improve the design of our trees since our residential designs have become more complex and complete.
Trees are also excellent source materials for artists and people who want to learn how to draw trees since over 60,000 species are documented on our planet. We hope that with this guide, you will learn everything you need to create your own tree drawing and gain a greater appreciation for the lush, leafy, life-giving beauty of trees along the way!
The tree should be drawn on one side.
The other side should be included.
Form a Y shape from the branches.
The following two branches should be drawn in a larger size.
Draw two larger branches still below.
The branches will be randomly shortened.
Make the branches bumpy by drawing a tree line.
Describe the leaf details, add a ground line, and add some clouds.
Color the drawing after tracing it with a marker.
On page 3, you’ll find the template.
The following figure illustrates two tree lines.
Inside the V shape, add a horizontal line.
In the circle, add more branches.
Using a black marker, trace the path.
Use a black marker to fill in the tree.
Warm colors should be used inside the tree.
Put green squares on the bottom.
Put blue squares in the sky.
The base of the triangle should be curved.
Overlap the upper portion with a smaller version of the same shape.
Once more, form the leaf structure of the tree by overlaying the apex of the triangle with a concave base.
The tree trunk will originate from the center of the disc-shaped structure located at the bottom of the triangles. The trunk will be made from a small cylindrical pillar.
You should hang six balls from each tip of the tree, with an apex star placed at the top.
Delete all the lines above the tree drawing.
Adding color to the tree and shadows.
Colorize the tree and shadows.
Sketch a simple line drawing. The tree’s trunk and some of its larger branches can be easily indicated by drawing a few lines around its general direction.
Drawing the tree trunk and larger branches. Now, you can draw out the tree’s trunk and more complex branches by drawing out their actual shapes. There is a tendency for the trunk and branches to become thinner as they get closer to the top of the tree, so keep this in mind when drawing the tree.
Make the branches smaller. Finish the line drawing by adding the smaller branches. To make the tree look natural, you will need a lot of small branches.
Add shading to your drawing. To make the tree appear more realistic, you may shade it in. By the time you have finished shading the picture, your drawing should look like the following.
The structure should be drawn in basic form. To guide your tree branch direction, draw a few leading lines to indicate the general shape. This process works well with pen and ink, but you may want to leave the watercolors and colored pencils for later.
Create the trunk by drawing cylinders over the lines. Trees are essentially cylindrical in their fundamental shape. Make the roots, trunk, and main branches more 3-dimensional by drawing cylindrical shapes over the structural lines.
Add foliage and leaves to the branches. Make a rough outline of the tree’s foliage, also known as the tree crown. Your lines can be jittered or undulated.
Trace the outline that you have created. With a thicker black pen or marker, trace over the final outline of the tree on a new layer. To maintain a clean workspace, you should hide all layers underneath your new outline.
Draw the bark on the trunk of the tree. The trunk should also be drawn using a variety of line weights. Your placement will suggest and help define the shape of the trunk you outlined without overdrawing the pattern. Be sure to contour your lines to the shape of the trunk you outlined.
Lastly, the practice of drawing trees is more difficult to describe than it is to do. Concentrate on getting the form of the trees right as well as the brightness values. A good sense of depth and space will result from accuracy in brightness values. For the drawing to stand out, you should ensure that the highlights and shadows are sufficiently contrasted. You will notice how much of a difference details make after mastering drawing the form and brightness values. We hope that this tutorial has provided you with a few key points to help you get started.
