Tip 2: How to draw a spruce branch

To convey the atmosphere of an event, it is not necessary to portray it in detail, it is often enough to note the most characteristic details. This also applies to the New Year's holiday - you can smell the tangerines and hear the crunch of snow by looking at the picture, which will show only a sprig of fir.
How to draw a spruce branch
You will need
  • - paper;
  • - pencil;
  • - eraser;
  • - watercolor;
  • - brushes;
  • - palette.
Take a sheet of paper for watercolors. Try to find the material is not white, and toned, ivory. Lightly noticeable pencil lines mark its space. Divide the sheet in half horizontally and vertically. In the left upper part there will be bells, a ball and a cone. The lower right square is balanced by the thickest part of the spruce paw. Leave some air in the remaining areas.
Specify the shape of the decorations on the tree. For the ball, draw vertical and horizontal axes (they should be equal in length).In the center, draw an ellipse that marks the volume of the ball. Connect the ends of the axes and sides of the ellipse with smooth lines to complete the construction of the form. Erase the lines of the axis and the back of the ellipse, and make its front section very light, a little visible.
For each of the bells, also draw a separate axis. They will be located at an angle of 45 degrees to each other. Ellipses in the lower and upper parts of the bells are different in width.
Outline the cones outline approximately. The main thing - to achieve its believable image.
Branch�ate do not draw in detail. It will be enough to designate the basics of the branches, and it is better to draw needles at once with paints.
Paint the drawing with watercolor. Take the thinnest brush (# 1), mix in the palette a light brown color with a little red. Mark the ball with thin lines. When the paint dries, wash it with a clean brush on the left side of the subject, which is more illuminated.
On the central part of the bells, draw a color reflex from the ribbons. To do this, use light brown and burgundy colors. In the shaded areas on the sides, apply a strip of dark brown with green and yellow.
You will need several shades of brown and blue to make the bumps. On the lighted areas, add a cool shade of brown to the brown; when moving to the shade, use a warm reddish.
The most painstaking work to be done when coloring a branch of spruce. Draw each needle in one color. Then, when it dries, apply different shades on each of the needles.
