Hola Warlocks! How are you doing today?😊 Cherry blossoms also known as Sakura in Japan is a super cool, super pretty thing that almost looks like paradise on earth. Who doesn’t love to capture it on canvas, yeah?😊 I’ve done a simple scenery using color pencils and here are the steps.
Before that, if you’d like to check out the cherry blossom doodle templates and cherry blossom doodle cards with free printables, here they are.
The concept here is a rainy road with bushes on the sides and a cherry blossom tree. So I’ve outlined accordingly. To add some texture to the tree trunk, strokes are drawn instead of flat tone shading.
2. Drawing bushes
There are various techniques to draw bushes. Here I’ve used simple and random leaf shading.
3. Adding depth to bushes
To add a little depth to the bushes, overlap the gray shades leaves with little darker leaves of random pattern. I’ve used 6B graphite pencil here. I’ve also used pink and gray colour in the path to create the concept of reflection after a rain.
4. Finishing up with Cherry Blossoms
To finish up the drawing, I’ve drawn pink leaves representing cherry blossoms, in a random pattern. Also, I’ve used gray color for the buildings in the background.
The pencils used are graphite – 6B, 7B, 8B. The colors used are pink, gray and white. Apart from these, the other thing that’s needed is a tiny bit of patience as well.😄
