Picture the scene: the sun is high, the days are long, and you are relaxing on a swing underneath your favorite tree. Sounds idyllic, right? Well, let’s see for ourselves in just a few short, simple steps!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin your drawing by using a thin black pen to draw two parallel, wavy lines in the center of your page, and add a “fork” to the top of this.
Next, add two more lines, ending in a point, to the left of this.
Draw another set of wavy lines reaching out to the right, ending in another fork, and then add another curved line to the top of this.
Add another point to the bottom left…
And then bring another set of lines across on the bottom right. Bring the top section up into another fork, reaching out to the right of the page, and then add a curved set of lines, joined in a point, just below this. Next, add a curved line heading down towards the bottom of the page.
Add another forked section to the left, and then bring a curved line down towards the bottom of the page to create a trunk for your tree.
Add a curved line to the bottom of the trunk…
And join the two ends of this at the bottom with a slightly curved line.
Next, add two sets of short, vertical lines to the bottom branch, and then add two ring shapes to the bottom of this.
Bring down two sets of long, parallel, vertical lines down from below these rings.
Add a long, thin rectangle to the bottom of this to create your swing…
And then add small bumps to the bottom, with a curved line emerging from the bottom of each of these.
Now, add a flower shape to the right of the top branch.
Follow this with a series of other small flowers, all around the branches.
Next, add a few leaf shapes to the branch right of the center…
And follow this by filling in the space between the branches with the leaves.
Add more leaves to the ends of branches, and in between the spaces…
And repeat this on the left-hand side of the tree.
Now, grab a brown pen, and use this to fill in the trunk and the branches.
Use a red pen for the seat of the swing and the outside of the petals…
And then fill in the leaves, the string of the swing, and the hill at the bottom with a green pen to complete your tree.
Now – did you ever see a more idyllic scene? It looks like a perfect place to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life!
