How to draw an oak branch with leaves

Let`s learn how to draw a tree branch with leaves. I chose the oak,to his example to show all the stages of drawing.

We will act as follows. First, we need to consider the branch and put it in front of themselves so that the leaves looked good. If the leaves bristling,they need a little smoothing,but not Ironing – because the branch needs to look natural. And now we don’t touch the nature – let it lie quietly.

Take a rectangular sheet of paper and place it vertically. Mark with a pencil the branch and average leaf veins.
