Overview

How to Draw Trees by Frank M. Rines

"To be able to draw and paint trees and have them look like trees and not just strokes, or gobs of paint, is the supreme test of a landscape artist's ability," declares the author of this practical manual. Distinguished landscape artist Frank M. Rines offers the benefit of his many years of teaching experience in this informative manual, which shows how to re-create one of nature's most triumphant creations: the tree.
This concise guide illustrates the dominant features of many common trees, with examples of typical, familiar species — elm, maple, willow, apple, birch, pine, and others — both with and without foliage. Studies of individual trees are followed by illustrations of trees in groups or as incidental parts of more elaborate compositions. Drawings are rendered in pencil and other media, with emphasis on the subject rather than the materials. Accompanying text explains how art students at all levels can develop and improve their own techniques by applying fundamental rules.
"An invaluable resource for any artist wishing to tackle one of nature's most complex creations." — Collector’s Corner
