Step 1.

Start by making a puffy cotton like cloud for the tree top.

Step 2.

Draw the tree stem and then the base of the tree like so.

Step 3.

Next, draw the top of another tree which is larger in size, and then make some more puffy shaped for the bushes that surround the bottom of the tree or landscape.

Step 4.

Now you can create a nice combination of pine trees in the background of your forest setting. Take your time so it comes out neat and accurate.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw the trunks for the other trees, and then add some detailing which is the wood grain or bark. Clean up the drawing freeing it from mistakes.

Step 6.

Here is what the finished sketch looks like when you are all done. Now you can color the trees in to your liking.
