Sketch The Trunk And Apply The Lightest Tones

Sketch the shape of the trunk and limbs with a mechanical pencil. Don't forget to include the large tree knots. With heavy, vertical pencil lines, apply the texture of the tree bark. Start with Sienna Brown first, and then layer on Dark Umber.

A tree limb or trunk is also a cylinder, just with a lot of texture. Use this exercise to practice drawing the cylindrical shape of a tree. Even though the surface is irregular and textured, the basic form is still a cylinder with the effects of light and dark creating the roundness.
