How To Draw A Tree

10 Amazing (and Easy!) Tutorials

Introduction

If you’re bored of the same old tree drawing process that you learnt back in kindergarten, and want to do something more exciting, I’ve got some good news for you. While working on another painting project, I came across some amazing tutorials on how to draw a tree, and noted down their details. These tutorials cover all kinds of tree drawings, starting from the ones you’ve been drawing since you were a child, to more artistic and lifelike ones. You can just choose the type you like, and get started with the drawing.

Start by drawing the outline of the tree. Keep it smooth and clean. Next, you add in the details that you’re supposed to. Finally, you sketch or apply paint to your tree drawing. Pay special attention to the color shades on the tree leaves. That’s where a lot of the focus will be on when you present your painting.
