How To Draw Trees - Quickly & Easily

How To Draw Trees - Quickly & Easily
Learning how to draw trees is a lot easier than you may think... Many budding artists of all ages are put off because they've only previously managed a 'lollipop' that they remember producing when they were at school. And yet, a lollipop isn't a million miles away from many real trees in full summer foliage. You just need to know where to 'tweak' your sketch to make your lollipop look the part. The good thing about learning how to draw trees is that unlike a portrait, where the features have to be in the right place for the face to look right, if you put a branch in the wrong place on a tree, it still looks like a tree. This tutorial gets you started using basic, familiar shapes you've seen a hundred times. But until now, I bet you never thought it would teach you how to draw trees ! Add a couple of simple techniques that I promise anyone can manage, and you'll be drawing believable, realistic trees with confidence in no time. Notice first that the top (black) pencil has a long point on it.

Doodling « Elizabeth Rosenberg's Blog I’ve always been a doodler. All the way back in my high school days, I used to doodle while the teacher was lecturing (though I might have been better off if I’d taken notes instead). I’d fill page after page of my notebooks with doodles. Most of them featured spirals, which I loved even back then. I especially loved doodling during music appreciation class. I remember my doodles becoming very loose and flowing when listening to classical music. I’ve always found that my creativity is greatly influenced by music, and I try to make that work for me in my studio as often as possible by listening to music that makes me feel good. I thought it might be fun to share some of the doodles I’ve been creating lately. All of my doodles start out simple, like this one: But then, over time, I add to the blank spaces in each one, and they become more detailed. This one, which is completely filled in until there is almost no space at all, is finished. As for my quilting, well, I am doing some of that.

Enthusiastic Artist • ❃ • ❋ • ❁ • tanglebucket • ✿ • ✽ • ❀ • For my fellow tangle junkies: some thoughts on collecting and organizing tangle patterns I'm a perfectionist. I didn't always know this about myself, or maybe I wasn't always one and I'm just settling into my own shoes a little as I get older. But "ehh.... good enough" is probably not something you'll hear me say. Because if I'm working on something I care about, and I know it's not the best I am capable of, I have to force myself to not redo every little thing and make it as good as I know it could be (and yes, I do realize that this occasionally makes me a little bit annoying). For example, I've attempted a few methods for collecting and organizing tangle patterns... index cards, flip cards, graph paper pads, Moleskine notebooks, different-sized journals, a small binder with page protectors, et cetera. First I had to let go of the idea that any journal I created would/could ever resemble Maria's... that just wasn't realistic for me. Here's how my lofty standards and I arrived at a solution I could run with. This beast of a craft punch came from Michael's. The bottom view.

Ich habe die Zeit genutzt und meine Winterkleidung aussortiert. Es ist nicht wahrscheinlich, dass jetzt noch winterliche Temperaturen zu erwarten sind. Selbst die sogenannte Schafskälte wird kaum dicke Winterjacken fordern. Aber ich habe die Zeit auch genutzt, um mich mit Stift und Papier ein wenig zu entspannen. Alle drei Teile sind klassische 9x9cm groß und ich habe zum Zeichnen den Pigmentliner 0,05 und Bleistift 2B zum Schattieren verwendet. Hier zeigt Linda Farmer neben ihrer sehr gut organisierten Mustersammlung seit Neuestem auch Stringvorschläge, die ich nutzen möchte, um einfach Muster auszuprobieren oder mir lange nicht verwendete wieder in Erinnerung zu bringen.

Tangle Tangle Tangle The book I co-authored with three other artists has been released, The Art of Zentangle. You will find 40+ pages of my work in the book (I am the "yellow" section.) It is hard for me to believe that my first publication is a Walter Foster book. They have been around for 90 years. I remember seeing their books when I was a child. I was excited when I learned they were going to use one of my tangles for the cover. You can find the book on Amazon.com by searching the name.
