I have prepared for you a great drawing lesson with which you can learn how to draw a tree step by step. This guide has nine steps.
So, you will definitely enjoy this lesson, in which I will tell and show you how to draw a tree step by step. This tutorial is designed by me specifically for beginner artists and children, so you don’t need to have too much experience as an artist to master this.
You should only carefully follow our recommendations in this manual and have a good mood. On a tree, you can see its three main parts: the root, the trunk, and the crown. The root is the underground part of the tree, so usually we can only see a small part of it.
With this lesson, you will learn another way to draw a tree step by step, and then you can apply these skills if you want to draw a natural landscape, a forest, depict a tree near a house, or use it as the main subject of your drawing.

How to Draw a Tree Step by Step
- Draw the tree trunk.
To complete this step, you need to draw two slightly curved lines, as shown in the picture.
- Depict the bottom of the tree.
Connect the lower ends of the previously drawn lines to depict part of the tree’s root.
- Start drawing the branches of the tree.
Extend the top ends of the lines drawn in the first step using curved lines of varying lengths.
- Add some more branches.
Between the previously drawn branches, draw a few more branches using curved lines.
- Begin to draw the outlines of the foliage of the tree.
Near the upper ends of the previously drawn lines, draw a lot of rounded lines.
- Add the outlines of the tree crown.
Use rounded lines and arcs of various sizes to depict the crown of the tree.
- Continue drawing the foliage of the tree.
Between the previously drawn tree branches, draw rounded lines, as shown in the figure.
- Finish drawing the foliage of the tree.
To make the drawing look more voluminous and realistic, draw a few more rounded lines.
- Color the drawing.
To color this tree, use green and brown.
