Q05 Drawing Squirkles Around a Tree

Even if you're an expert in botany, you'll have a hard time figuring out what kind of tree this is. The tree in this lesson doesn’t exist; rather it's a figment of my imagination. If you prefer, you can base your drawing on a more realistic tree (from life or a photo). Most beginners to drawing tend to draw only the branches that grow from the sides of the tree, without indicating those that are behind and in front of the trunk. The primary goal of this lesson is to provide learners with a strong sense of the three dimensional qualities of a tree.
