This delightful introduction to drawing trees completely demystifies the drawing process. It shows how images can be built up easily, from initial geometric shapes right through to the finished trees. Denis Naylor includes a good selection of popular species such as Weeping Cherry in Blossom, Oak, Eucalyptus, Aspen in Autumn and many, many more. He also shows you how to draw tree details such as roots, cones and trunks. He uses a helpful two-colour method that clearly shows every line and curve of the step-by-step pictures. Even absolute beginners will find themselves creating great drawings when they use this book and there is much to inspire more experienced artists too. An invaluable guide for anyone interested in this subject.
