Watercolor Techniques for Realistic Snowy Trees & Bushes
Step 6: Sketching A Snowy Scrub Bush
To better understand how to create a winter forest scene, you can work on another section on the paper. Start again with a simple sketch of a scrub bush with evergreen trees in the background, once more using careful observation to mark out exactly where snow and shadows fall, and varying the shapes you create so no tree or bush is too symmetrical. For the trees in the background, vary their heights and sizes to make them look natural while creating a sense of depth. Erase any stray lines with the kneaded eraser.
