Learn to draw trees with artist David Morales (@dava22) in this art class preview. You’ll see him sketch a scene with a backdrop full of lush trees, paying particular attention to its volume and values to explain depth and perception. He’ll show you how to apply crosshatching sketch techniques to bring the subject and its background to life.

Topics Covered:

  • Simplifying and unifying distant trees
  • Building layers of crosshatching for dark values
  • Crosshatching with consistency
  • Preserving the lighter values
  • Keeping contrast high in focal areas
