For a lovely tropical landscape, take a lesson on how to draw palm trees. These palm trees are on a sandy beach, against a slightly clouded blue sky. The step-by-step drawing tutorial is easy to follow, with an animated pencil showing how each line is added. You can control any of the 12 steps, with pause or replay. The first part of the lesson shows how to sketch in the basic shapes of the trees, then adds all the color and detailed shading. Listen to the waves lap and the wind whisper through these palms.
