  1. Brenda Hoddinott D-07 BEGINNER: SQUIRKLING In ten simple steps, you transform a single vertical line on a sheet of paper, into a silhouette drawing of a majestic spruce tree. Suggested drawing supplies include good quality white drawing paper, a kneaded and vinyl eraser, and a 4B (or 6B) graphite pencil. You begin this project by setting up and drawing the trunk of the tree and the ground and then you complete the tree drawing branches and shrubs and grass on the ground. Squirkling is used to add texture and details to the tree’s branches. Squirkling is an easy method of shading, in which randomly drawn curved lines (called squirkles) combine squiggles and scribbles with circles to create textured values. Texture is the surface detail of an object, as defined in a drawing with various shading techniques. The senses of touch and sight help identify the surface texture of drawing subjects. When you draw a portrait, if your proportions are wrong, your drawing just won’t look right no matter how wonderful your shading is. Not so with a tree; if the proportions are off, it really doesn’t matter. Proportion is the relationship in size of one component of a drawing to another or others. 7 PAGES – 9 ILLUSTRATIONS Recommended for artists, aged ten to ninety-nine, who have limited drawing skills, as well as home schooling, academic and recreational fine art educators Published by Hoddinott Fine Art Publishers, Halifax, NS, Canada, Revised 2006
  2. 2 SKETCHING A SPRUCE TREE You first draw the trunk of a tree and the ground from which it grows and then add branches growing from the trunk of the tree and some grass on the earth below the tree. ILLUSTRATION 06-01 Find your drawing supplies and draw along with me as I take you step-by-step through this project. Feel free to draw your tree any shape you prefer, such as those in the drawings below. ILLUSTRATION 06-02 Shape refers to the outward outline of a form. Even though the proportions are different, they all still look like trees. 1) With a 6B pencil, lightly sketch a line (as the center of the trunk of the tree) from the bottom of your drawing space almost to the top. Drawing space (also referred to as the drawing surface or a drawing format) refers to the area in which you render a drawing within a specific perimeter. It can be the shape of your paper or outlined by any shape you choose, such as a rectangle or square. 2) Add the ground (or base) from which the tree grows. Fill it in with your 6B pencil. You can make the ground bumpy or fairly level.

  3. 3 ILLUSTRATION 06-03 3) Make the base of the tree wider and fill it in with your 6B pencil. Observe that the trunk of the tree is very narrow at the top and gradually gets wider closer to the bottom. You strengthen the trunk of the tree by drawing it wider and anchor the trunk of the tree in some earth. 4) Before you begin adding branches to your tree take a few minutes and practice drawing curved raggedy lines as in Illustration 06-04. Draw the raggedy edges before you add darker shading to the inner sections of each branch. Not very much of your paper (maybe none at all) is visible in the center of the branches because there are lots and lots of curvy lines. Drawing with loose raggedy lines, creates realistic looking branches on a tree.

  4. 4 ILLUSTRATION 06-05 5) Add a few tiny branches at the top of the tree trunk. Keep in mind the old expression “Less is more”! It is easy to add more branches later if your tree looks too sparse, but erasing branches (or sections of branches), which are too full or thick is almost impossible. ILLUSTRATION 06-06 6) Add a few slightly larger branches in the upper section of the tree trunk, below those at the top. Branches on trees tend to become progressively larger the closer they are to the base of the tree.

  5. 5 ILLUSTRATION 06-07 7) Add larger branches growing from the center section of the tree trunk. While branches on trees are usually larger closer to the bottom, you can’t always tell this by looking at a tree from one perspective. Some branches may be partially hidden behind the tree and others may be at the front of the tree. ILLUSTRATION 06-08 8) Add large branches to the bottom section of the tree. For a more realistic looking tree, I drew some of my lower branches (on the left) smaller than others above it.

  6. 6 ILLUSTRATION 06-09 9) Add some squiggly and raggedy lines extending from the earth to look like shrubs and grass. 10) Sign your name, put today’s date on the back, give yourself a big hug, go hug a tree, and then find another project to draw!

  7. 7 BRENDA HODDINOTT - BIOGRAPHY As a self-educated teacher, visual artist, portraitist, forensic artist, and illustrator, Brenda Hoddinott utilizes diverse art media including graphite, technical pen, colored pencil, chalk pastel, charcoal, conté crayon, and oil paints. My philosophy on teaching art is to focus primarily on the enjoyment aspects while gently introducing the technical and academic. Hence, in creating a passion for the subject matter, the quest for knowledge also becomes enjoyable. >Brenda Hoddinott< Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Brenda grew up in the small town of Corner Brook. She developed strong technical competencies with a personal commitment to self directed learning, and the aid of assorted “Learn to Draw” books. During Brenda’s twenty-five year career as a self-educated civilian forensic artist, numerous criminal investigation departments have employed Brenda’s skills, including Royal Canadian Mounted Police and municipal police departments. In 1992, Brenda was honored with a commendation from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and in 1994, she was awarded a Certificate of Membership from “Forensic Artists International”. Her home-based art career included graphic design, and teaching recreational drawing and painting classes. As supervisor of her community’s recreational art department, Brenda hired and trained teachers, and designed curriculum for several children’s art programs. In 1998, Brenda chose to end her eighteen-year career as an art educator in order to devote more time to writing, drawing, painting, and developing her websites. Drawspace http://www.drawspace.com incorporates her unique style and innovative approach to curriculum development. This site offers downloadable and printable drawing classes for students of all abilities from the age of eight through adult. Students of all ages, levels and abilities have praised the simple step-by-step instructional approach. These sites are respected as a resource for fine art educators, home schooling programs, and educational facilities throughout the world.
