The Eucalyptus tree is one that is instantly recognizable when you are in a certain part of the world and is ideal for conjuring up images of hot, baking landscapes and wonderful natural paradises. Want your very own to enjoy? Then let’s draw one!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a black pen, and draw a small “teardrop” shape in the top right corner of your page.
Now, add two smaller shapes to the top and bottom…
And then bring a curved line across to the left.
Add a few more small shapes to create leaves all along the length of this.
Now, add another line just above the bottom one to create a long, elegant twig.
Add another bunch of three leaves just above this one…
And add another long, thin stem below, ending in a point at the bottom.
Around halfway up this, add another twig curving across to the left and up. Add some more leaves to the top of this.
Now, add another twig and set of leaves just to the right of the upright section…
And draw another offshoot coming off the branch on the left.
Next, add another wavy branch to the bottom of the main stem, complete with leaves on either side…
And then add another one just above this.
Bring another branch, complete with leaves, waving off to the top left corner of your page.
Now, bring another branch off this one, this time heading off to the right.
Add another tall, thin branch to the left of this one, and add a few leaves along the length…
And then follow this up with two more to the left – one shorter, and one tall and proud.
Now, bring a long, vertical line down from the right side of the main stem. Curve this across at the bottom, and then back up on the other side.
Now, add a wavy branch to the end of this.
Bring another branch across horizontally just above this line.
Add another curved branch just above the one you just created…
And then add another horizontal branch with leaves. Then add more curved branches and leaves to the left section.
Grab a yellow pen, and use this to shade the trunk and the branches…
And then use a green pen to fill in the leaves.
And there we have it – a Eucalyptus tree waiting in the landscape, anticipating an adventure to be told – can you oblige?
