|Free how to draw a tree stump worksheet|
Don't overdraw the trunk at this point; move on to the other features of the picture, so you draw the picture as a whole. Use the same squiggly line and draw the simple silhouette of the bushes and the underside of the trees. Use sharp jagged lines to draw the tree trunks. Use short vertical lines to draw the grass.
The grass in the distance is shortest and in long rows the grass in the foreground is longest and is clumped in groups this makes it interesting.
Shade in the tree trunk using a soft dark pencil on the shadow; use the side of the pencil with short choppy lines going up and down the trunk. Use the point of a hard light pencil to texture the sunny side. Make the shading increase to the dark side of the trunk. Do the same for the trees in the back ground but keep it simpler and use only a hard pencil so it stays lighter.
Don't forget the branch that is growing out of the root on the side of the trunk, this tells the story of the tree. Shade tree leaves darkest at the top and lightest toward the opening this gives the effect of distance. Shade in the bushes under the tree with a light pencil. Use a blending sick to smooth out the pencil shading.
This will be a very inspiring picture when you are done.
