Hey, I'm Bill Connolly your artist and cartoonist extraordinaire. Ever wonder how to draw a willow tree from memory? Well let's try, I remember one from growing up. My neighbors in their yard they had a huge weeping willow tree. Boy, it was beautiful. Then you can go and kind of make the stems. We used to climb in it once in a while too. And I'm going to go through now and a lot of cool lines in that. You could spend a lot of time if you're doing a pen and ink. But very basically there, that's your branches coming up. The bare bones of the tree first and then go in and it's a lot of this, a lot of the willow branches coming down. Let's make more come in, like this. We get as many as we can in just a couple of minutes here. And it goes way up and really are great shade trees, if you've ever been under a weeping willow tree. And you can add different values as you go in a color it in. And you have an advantage if you're doing color that you can go and make it even better. The basic set up though, is there and more branch, bring it in and puts some birds or butterflies in there. But basically the set up of a willow tree is right there and I am Bill Connolly your artist and cartoonist extraordinaire with a willow tree and I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you.
