You are a landscape artist who will pick your artistic style today! In pencil, first create and design a landscape that features one unique tree (or several) that has a definite personality. Illustrate the branches, root system, everything. Make it interesting by incorporating implied textures, twisted branches, bulges or knots in the tree, include the way the tree might flow in the wind, and the season your tree(s) are in must be apparent.
Be sure to emphasis and utilize shading to make the tree look as stylistic as possible (for example, are you a realist? Are you a Surrealist? Are you an Abstract artist?) Use a wide range of lights and darks to create dimension and form. Nothing in your drawing should look flat. Your composition (your entire drawing!) should be interesting, unique and must include a foreground, mid-ground and background with the main focus being the TREE. Avoid drawing the tree directly in the center. Consider these drawing techniques as you create your composition: cropping, enlargement, focal point, and symmetry. You can carefully add color, but avoid markers, try oil pastels or crayon. Remember: BLEND YOUR COLORS into shades and highlights!!
Use a tree from your own environment/ back yard and bring it to life in your art!
Get on line and find a specifically, unique type of tree as your focus.
