Recently I updated my microsite about drawing deciduous trees. I used the line sketch above to illustrate basic steps that can help beginners to draw such complicated matter as a tree top. As first step I suggest to draw the shape of the tree in order to get familiar with the proportions of trunk and tree top. Then bigger groups of leaves along the branches can be mapped, in a next step a more detailed structure of the foliage can be added and finally shadows in hatches can give some more volume to the drawing. This is a simple “recipe” for beginners. Further studies will train the eye and with more and more knowledge of the subject such “recipes” will be obsolete and drawing will evolve very relaxed.
