Palm trees have shapes unlike any other. This is likely why they are frequently used to represent everything related to life on the beach. All you have to look at is their outline, and the idea of a swaying ocean comes to mind.
This video tutorial will guide students to draw a palm tree and create those distinctive leaves that appear as authentic as possible. The most efficient way to draw those notches is, to begin with, the overall shape first and then draw the cutouts in the second. After that, a little care in erasing, and you’ll have a beautiful tree that is full of gorgeous palm leaves.
A Quick Overview of all Steps
The guide begins with a brief overview of each step. Please do not worry about all the specifics yet since we’ll be talking about every step in lots of detail later in this tutorial. However, it’s a good idea to look at the larger image of all the steps before beginning to draw.
How to Draw a Palm Tree In a realistic way
Before you begin, you should be aware that there are specific ways you can apply to ensure that your palm tree is real.
The first trick to draw your palm tree real is to use a light and cautious hand. Start by drawing the lines with a light touch, and then keep an eraser close to your hand. Then, you can make the lines darker when you’re satisfied that you’ve done the palm tree’s characteristics correctly.
The first step – draw the Crown of Leaves.
Draw the leaves facing toward the front. Next, draw the following set of leaves in the background. This is followed by the set that follows them. Then sketch the leaf (or, in this instance, the leaf) towards the rear.
Step 2 Draw the Trunk
Below the leaves, draw a long trunk larger at the bottom and smaller on the upper. It is possible to do this using only two pairs of straight lines.
Step 3: Draw the center parts of the leaves.
Draw a line across the middle of each leaf to reveal the rachis (the middle of the leaf).
Step 4: Draw the Stripes along the Trunk
You can add stripes to the tree’s trunk, giving it its distinctive appearance. The stripes should be spaced further apart towards the bottom and closer to climb the trunk.
Step 5 – Complete the Line Drawing
Make a few minor “cuts” on their sides to create a palm-tree like. Make sure to draw them randomly and of slightly different dimensions. They should generally be smaller towards the bottom and the tips of the leaves and more significant in the middle.
After you’re done, you can go over your drawing using either dark lines of pencil or black marker. You can also erase the lines around the edges of the leaves on which you made the tiny “cuts.”
