Saw a ‘how to’ draw trees pin on pintrest and had to take a look. The idea of the pin was to draw the simple shapes and refine them; decided that I should give it a try. Most of the time simple is best. It’s that way with closets, cooking, and now I know trees.
I started with the shapes of two trees and then I couldn’t stop. I was not standing outside looking at any trees or the lighting, but when I finished I realized it looks a bit like the edge of our meadow where the path enters the woods.
Sitting outside this evening, looking at all the trees in front of me, I tried to look at them as if I was going to draw the basic shapes. It still won’t be easy, but keeping it simple just might work.
