Tips of the Week: Drawing a Tree
A simple 5 mins tree with Chartpak markers: First outlined it with red or 6B pencil and render leaves with Grass Green and Nile Green; trunk with Buff, Suntan and Mocha. Finally outlined it with black Sharpie and hit it with Prismacolor pencils – Poppy Red and True Blue. Always apply markers from lighter to darker color and leave appropriate white space. Use darker green to show off lighter trunk and don’t forget to illustrate the zig-zag shape of tree. Copy this drawing a couple of times and you will be good.
