Tutorial – How to Draw a Grove of Trees


Artwork: Daniel Smith Watercolor on Stonehenge Aqua Coldpress Black

Are you here for:

This is a repeat of the Grove step-out. I’ve updated the text and added a new header example. Sorry – I didn’t have time for a video this week.

One of the hallmarks of ‘naive art’ (I recommend you google Naive Art Landscapes) is that real-life perspective is not important. If your buildings are a little crooked and the road in the distance looks as wide as the road up front – it just adds to the charm.

Grove is a forest of trees. It can be used as the main subject of a landscape, but is also great as a secondary subject in the midground or background.

Your grove can look like several trees or a tree with several trunks that split from the same base.

If Grove is your main subject, you add more detail. If it is background, you want to keep it more simple.
