How to Draw Trees: It's All About Shapes!

March 24, 2017

Drawing trees can seem like a difficult task, with all of their detail and obscure shapes. However, you can simplify them by breaking it down into shapes, around which you outline to create the right form. Remember to save all the details, textures, and shadows for last!

You can draw evergreens by stacking simple triangles on top of each other, with each section casting a shadow onto the next.

 

Draw deciduous trees by grouping circles of different sizes together, then adding detail instead of drawing individual leaves (which would take forever!)

 

Artists’ Tip: Branches, like tree trunks, get narrower as they grow. Lines in nature are rarely orderly, so remember to keep your lines loose and uneven!


Happy drawing! Visit our Resources Page for a printer friendly version.
