Henri Rousseau – Tree Trunks
Henri Rousseau was born in 1844, almost 200 years ago, in the little town of Laval in the country of France. He taught himself how to paint, he loved nature and landscapes, and he never gave up.
In today’s lesson we’ll begin to create trees by sketching out a trunk and adding texture.
- Your imagination!
- Something to draw on (paper, paper bag, newspaper, or…?)
- Something to draw with (pencils, pens, crayons, chalk, or…?)
