Hey, what's up, it's Chris. And today we're going to be learning how to draw trees for elementary. Let's begin. This is very simple. What you want to do is, you want to start from here. You want to draw a point going down, and then another point going out this side and then another point going that side. Bring it back in and come down. As you get to the bottom, it gets wider because that is where the tree is rooted. You can draw these lines, simple lines to show the bark and the definition in the tree. And what I like to do is take another color and here's some green to show that the tree is in the grass. So, you can do that going across. You see. And with this same marker, you can just draw a line here, a line here, here a circle line, here and there. Those are your leaves. Take a thicker marker of the same color and just fill that in. So, basically you're doing an outline of it but as you get closer, you fill it in. See? Just fill it in. Don't be afraid. Bring it down. You can get as closest to the line as you want. You're just filling it in. You're having fun. Right here, these are all leaves. And as you fill it in, you'll see it has more depth and a fullness to it. You can even get close to the lines if you wish. And if you go over it, so what. It's a tree. Let's do it. There you are. Do not be scared to get close to the line. One more thing, one more thing. I'm starting to get hungry, so here's an apple. That's one apple hanging from this tree. Who's going to get it first, you or me. I don't know. I'm pretty hungry. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a tree for elementary.
