Start with a black fineliner pen, and draw a “reversed D” shape in the center of your page, close to the top. The curve of the “D” should be slightly wavy, with a bump in the center, and the “stem” of the D should be slightly longer.


2.

Add another thin line just inside the “stem”.

Then, add hatching to the left of this, with short, diagonal lines pointing up to the top left-hand corner of the page.

Now, repeat this whole shape, but reverse it. Place the new shape to the left of the first, angled at around 45 degrees. These will be leaves at the top of your tree.

Bring a slightly thicker line down from the join of these two shapes, and then sharply angle this across towards the bottom right-hand corner.
