How to Depict Trees by Watercoloring

By Tom Tripp

For any artist there arrives a time in his career when a line of trees, or a single one, is required to make the background of the scene he, or she, is working on to be complete. There are quite a few ways to accomplish this as evidenced by the many books, instructional videos, and internet resources available that are devoted to the subject. But what many desire truly is to learn the secret of how to draw trees by watercolor in a few simple steps.

The initial step that should be taken is to gather together the required materials. Of course this step is a necessity in almost any endeavor that is creative that one wishes to undertake. In this particular case though the correct materials consist of a medium, like paper, for putting your finished product on, brushes and the right colors of watercolor paints. Another useful tool to have is an eraser, for mistakes, and a drawing pencil.

The second step that must be accomplished is a rough sketch of what you intend to paint. To that end your sketching pencil must be put to paper. Having a model to sketch also helps thus you should choose a living tree that appeals to you and begin drawing it.

The chosen should be as devoid of leaves as possible and be dark against a lighter sky, or other background. This enables the eye to see the structure of the tree better and avoid confusion. It also prevents strain of the eye and the discomfort that brings.

As you draw the tree also be aware of its basic outline and make it a part of what you are drawing. Pay special attention to how the branches connect with the main trunk of the tree and the spaces between the various parts of the tree. What results does not have to be a perfect copy but should represent its shape.

As the drawing nears completion, be sure to pay closer attention the shading and details. Practice and a good eye for picking up detail are essential for good results. Another important factor to consider is where the light is coming from. The drawing would not be as realistic if there is not shade where there should be or brighter areas where there should not be. Understanding the light source is essential to the creation of a quality piece of art. On the other hand too many details will just ruin what you are trying to accomplish.

Learning how to draw trees by watercolor or any other means is near necessity for any budding artist to round out their skills. Of course there is also the fact that most outdoor paintings require a background of trees to seem complete.

Technique of Architectural Perspective

With computers taking over many industries, it is only natural to take those advances and utilize them in businesses such as architecture. Architects are utilizing the technique of architectural rendering to create multi-dimensional architectural designs. This is also sometimes called architectural illustrating.

With complex 3D programs, architects are using rendering to make detailed images. These can be very lifelike and are typically scale models that are sometimes made into walkthroughs, virtual tours and flyovers. They even use rendering for proposed as well as already existing projects. Many different types of businesses use rendering for different reasons, but they are being used most often by architects.

The images made with architectural rendering often contain viewpoints, lighting, shading and geometric information of the design. These renderings are often architectural 3D models created to the proper proportions, scale and utilize real life textures, colors, finishes and even materials. These things can be played around with a bit until the final acceptable effect is achieved. Instead of wasting time by building and tearing down, the final results are there for the immediate approval.

Designs can be modified and played with by the designer until a final, acceptable product is obtained. Now instead of wasted time and money on building and tearing down, the end result will look exactly how it is supposed to.

Sometimes called photo-real renderings, architectural rendering is an amazing advance in technology, under any name. Architecture is not the only business that benefits from this style, but it is the main one. Clients can see a final, multi-dimensional rendering of their project before building starts. These designs can be tinkered with and changed without much cost where otherwise it would cost a lot of money to have to do tear downs and rebuilds. This saves everyone time, money and stress.

The technique of architectural rendering not only helps architects achieve a great looking final model of their structure, but it can really save people money. Instead of not liking the way a structure looks after it has already been built, it is easy to see the final result and change it before any costly work is already done. There is no need for expensive tear-downs and rebuilds.

Softwares Used For Digital Renderings?

Rendering is the art of duplicating a model or reality on paper or any other such similar medium as an image or photograph or such other similar format. With the advent of computers and its multifarious usage, the process of rendering which used to be carried out by hand moved onto the computer platform. With the number of available programs used for computer renderings, the task itself has become faster with greater versatility added to it.

The use of rendering can be seen from engineering and scientific fields to pure entertainment fields. An architect needs to render the building as it would be when completed to explain the line model that his sketch represents. The interior designer similarly needs to render the exact view that the room would portray once interior decoration has been completed. In the field of games rendering is used extensively as seen through the characters and props that are used for playing the game. In the field of movies too characters and scenarios are created using the art of computer rendering.

By including the feature of depth to an otherwise 2D image or photograph the artist gives it a magical touch rendering it to a near real life objects. This is more so for it is carried out on surface which is itself 2D.

A number of software or program is now available in the market which has the capability to do the task of digital rendering. Depending on the type of rendering that is required these programs vary in features from each other. CAD is one program used by architects in architectural rendering jobs. The same is not suitable for rendering characters required for a game and for which a different rendering program is available.

Mathematical modelling of the real life or object to be rendered is created by the program and then manipulated once again mathematically to create the rendered end job. This is the basic principle on which every program used for computer rendering is based upon.

Programs used for 3d renderings would not, however, suffice for the complete job of either the architect or the game or movie maker. There would be many other processes that necessitate other experts and expertise or maybe even software to complete the render the entire project as complete.

Choose the Best Renderer For Your Building Project

Almost all the essential fields of engineering business involves the rendering utilities nowadays as they scope of rendering is just scaling new horizons far and wide with the aid of cutting edge technology which is upgrading day in and out. So the requirements on a renderer who does this task are rising in their standard. Under these circumstances how to choose the best renderer for your architectural project? The pros and cons are analyzed below.

The mastery of the individual in both 2d and 3d models rendering should be tested as a basic requirement. Most of the times it is found that these people in general are not that skilled in debugging even though they can have knowledge about installation, testing on these skills is a must before picking him.

Documentation works and all the steps further ahead until record keeping and maintenance should also be taken care completely by them with support staff as they alone knows it from the scratch to the projected completion.

Possessing interpersonal skills to a good level to maintain his or her relationship good with all the other sections of the company is important so that he can work with the other technical departments to understand and implement edge in technology.

Creativity is something which is inborn and certain people do cultivate it in time in due course as every body does have it to a certain extent while the inborn do scale remarkable heights. Also, the individual should be able to effectively communicate clearly to the colleagues to achieve good results collectively altogether.

The basic prerequisite of the selected individual is the caliber in his or her for estimation jobs. Any work further will totally rely just based on the estimation done by the design team.

Years of experience and up to date knowledge can alone yield this quality to a renderer under most circumstances. Apart from all these discussed above on how to choose the best renderer for your architectural project, one should ensure that his renderer has the zeal to work on his own.


No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.
Michael Ende

Not many architects have the luxury to reject significant things.
Rem Koolhaas

Nothing requires the architect's care more than the due proportions of buildings.
Marcus V. Pollio

Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns.
Arne Jacobsen

Rome has not seen a modern building in more than half a century. It is a city frozen in time.
Richard Meier

Space has always been the spiritual dimension of architecture. It is not the physical statement of the structure so much as what it contains that moves us.
Arthur Erickson

The bungalow had more to do with how Americans live today than any other building that has gone remotely by the name of architecture in our history.
Russell Lynes

The dialogue between client and architect is about as intimate as any conversation you can have, because when you're talking about building a house, you're talking about dreams.
Robert A. M. Stern

The frightening thought that what you draw may become a building makes for reasoned lines.
Saul Steinberg

The higher the building the lower the morals.
Noel Coward

The interior of the house personifies the private world; the exterior of it is part of the outside world.
Stephen Gardiner

The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.
Thomas Kempis

The Romans were not inventors of the supporting arch, but its extended use in vaults and intersecting barrel shapes and domes is theirs.
Harry Seidler

The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Adolf Loos

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.
Antonio Gaudi
