Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge- Elephant Foot Tree #Fun&EasyLandscapes #DrawingTutorial #ArtChallenge #ZebraPen_USA @ZebraPen_USA

If you are here for my Hahnemühle Harmony Watercolor Paper giveaway, you can find it here.

The Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge May 11 – May 17: Draw a landscape using the Elephant Foot Tree step-out.  Extra calorie-free brownie points for using the Rafflesia step-out as well.

Believe it or not, today’s step-out is based on a real tree.  It is also known as the Ponytail Palm or Ponytail Plant.  This plant grows into some unique shapes and varies during the seasons.  So no right or wrong here.  Let your unique flag fly, and add your own touch to this tree.

Vary the shape and size of the trunk
Vary the shape and size of the flowers
Vary the shape and length of the leaves
Turn the leaves into snakes or ropes, etc
Make the leaves swirl
Twist and bend the trunk
Stop at the 6th step and create a bush with no trunk at all

You get the gist – imagine, exaggerate and enjoy!

Step-out drawn with Zebra Pen Sarasa Fineliners.
I’ve been playing with Brusho crystals and wanted to try them on newspaper, so that’s what I did for today’s example.  I used Zebra Pen’s PM-701 permanent marker for the outline.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
