Landscapes: Trees

The trees look amazingly simple to sketch, but don't be surprised if you struggle with it for an hour or so. It takes a lot of patience and understanding to get the delicate balance of the trees, as if they are vulnerable, swaying in the wind. The first time I sketched them, the trees looked like stiff little tin soldiers. I had to observe my teacher to really perceive them right, and not simply as objects composed of barks staring in different directions.
