How to Draw (paint) a Cherry Tree With Ink & Water – Give Away: Fountain Pen Pilot Vanishing Point


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
today we will draw a cherry tree… and today also we will give a away
a beautiful fountain pen. This is it… the famous Pilot Vanishing Point. It has the novelty that with a click
on the back, the tip comes out. During this tutorial, I will
tell you how to participate in the raffle. It will be waiting for you [laughter]. To create the project I will be using these
two similar pens to yours… … with two different inks. But first I will sketch the tree
with pencil, because obviously, the ink from the pens cannot be erased. We outline the trunk. This tree is going
to be seen in perspective from the bottom, as if you were under the tree. In the shadows of the tree. And we sketch some branches. Because of the perspective the tree
is going to be much wider at the bottom and will become thiner quickly. When drawing the branches
rather than curving lines, it looks better to do them with short
straight lines that change direction. I want to achieve a very special effect
and therefore, I get the whole paper wet with plain water, and a brush. I lift the paper path to rinse
the water. I don’t want an excess,
just damp. Now, here comes the fun part: Since the ink on the pens is water based,
in theory, if I draw with this, it should help us to achieve the effect we need
for the cherry tree`s flowers. I´m making little dots
on the damp paper, around the branches. This is the color ink, I´m using. It is called Yama budu, sorry
I don´t speak japanese. I will write the list of all exact
materials that I am using, in the description under the video. It is like a dark pink with a slight
violet tint in it. Very nice! The flower shouldn’t be even all over they come in bunches. If the paper becomes dry
before you finish, you can now go over it again with the brush
because you would take off all the ink. But rather you can lightly use
a spray bottle to keep it damp. But even then, the ink that
you already drew will react and spread a little bit more. Now using the other pen
with brown ink, I delineate the trunk of the tree. I´m giving some shading with hatching
and crosshatching. Of course it should’t be even,
the bark is a bit rough. I really love drawing with these fountain pens! They just glide on the paper incredibly. We draw the branches but we will
have some sections that are covered by the flowers… so we do not draw these. In regards to the raffle of the pen,
all you have to do to participate and to have a chance to win it,
is to leave a comment on my Facebook page called “Galería de Leonardo Pereznieto”
[laughter] I will leave you the link under the video. Saying that you want the Vanishing Point
Fountain pen, or something like that. Participation will end in the evening
of this Sunday 12 of March and the winner wil be announce on Facebook, on Monday. Good luck! I wish I have pens for everyone. However, in the near future I will
be giving, more gifts. So stay tuned. We can go over the areas again
that we want darker. We give them two or three passes. Very good! ¡Excelente! Please let me know what do you think
of this drawing/painting technique. We give it the last touches,
and it´s ready! If you enjoyed it,
please give it a LIKE! share it to your friends
and subscribe to Fine Art-Tips and to Patreon. You know where to follow me,

on Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ Subtitled by Grethel Trejo
