         Drawing 1, A Texture or Object          For 10 minutes, draw a tree. Try to show a different texture for the leaves, the bark and the grass it sits on. Draw the big shapes first and lightly shade where the shadows are. Remember that the further from the ground a branch is, the smaller it is. And lastly, one mistake new artists always make is to plop the trunk straight into the ground, like a fence post. Trees gently slope into the ground at the bottom and have roots to stabilize them.          Tree Drawing Tutorial
