How NOT? to draw trees… Hmm, look like pretty nice tree drawings to me…
Second experiment. The drawings I did yesterday really are not my style… if I have a style. I mean, the drawings are only watercolor, usually I use watercolors to give color to my pen and ink sketches. I did not use ink yesterday. I focused on color.
Today I want to isolate the shape so I do not use color. I use my graphite pencils (mainly HB and 2B) but I have tried to apply same rules, obviously, adapting them to graphite techniques. And here are the results.
The first tree is based on a video by the British writer and illustrator Shoo Rayner. The rest are variations on the same idea.
