Expo Marker Tree

Beauty can come from anywhere. This beautiful tree proves that you don’t need tools to create a beautiful tree.

I used three: blue expo marker, white gel pen, and brown brush pen from the dollar store.

I drew using two elements of design: shape and shading

Starting from the bottom I created a series of upside down v’s. The v’s get smaller as I move on up to the top of the paper. Then I went over a few of the lines adding darker layers in the middle section of the tree. Wait a minute, the blue and white make beautiful contrast.

Most importantly I had a wonderful time creating. Three trees that didn’t work out but the fourth is a magical charm.
