Tree Shapes

I am waiting for my art supplies to arrive in the mail for my tree class that I told you about yesterday so I decided to explore the shape of trees with some quick sketches.

I purchased this used book from Amazon recently:

It’s silhouettes of tree images helped me greatly!  Here are a few more tree shapes that I colored with color pencils:

One of our assignments for the class was to draw a continuous line of trees – I have to say this is very addicting!

And another one:

There are so many tree varieties in shape, form and color!  So fun to explore…

Happy Drawing!  🙂

    • Thanks Laura! I have never studied the different shape of trees in the concept of looking at their silhouettes. This class got to thinking about this idea. It wasn’t part of our assignment but I learned a lot doing my own study. 😍 And thanks for taking a second look! 😄👍

  16. I think I’m going to be sorry for not signing up for this class. I’ve started drawing my own tree shapes and have passed that on to my students. I think I’ll add some colour to my trees.
