CONTENTS  - 4 - 20 WAYS TO DRAW A TREE  is a fun and interactive book designed to help you explore a wide variety of approaches to drawing. It encourages experimentation with media and explores different ways of looking and seeing. Inside you will find plenty of examples to delight and inspire, and space to add your own creations.Nature is a rich source of material for challenging and exciting things to draw. In this book, forty-five themes from nature have been chosen, with each drawn in a wide variety of styles. For each theme, the subject matter remains the same, but the approach to drawing it differs. You will see twenty ways to draw each topic: Perhaps you can come up with twenty more? Drawing, in its most basic form, suggests the use of paper and pencil to capture or record a subject. We may be familiar with a certain way of drawing, but there are many ways we can “draw” that make use of a much broader range of materials, media, and techniques than we normally use. A fine-line pen will give clean, crisp, and controlled lines. A dip pen and ink will give a looser line that varies in weight. Painterly brushstrokes give energy and suggest movement. Paint spread on acetate and then scratched into before being pressed onto paper gives texture and depth. An edge of card dipped in paint and used as a printing tool gives random and unique marks. Each of these methods is effectively a way of “drawing” or recording the subject matter—but the results are dramatically different. The way we “see” a subject also affects our drawing. Our focus may vary widely. Perhaps we are interested in shape, texture, line quality, or color? Maybe our focus is on the decorative elements of the object? When we draw, we are able to use our personal responses to the subject matter INTRODUCTION
