Leaf Drawing Tutorial Video

Whether you are looking to draw leaves, or have something that needs them added to the background, here’s a handy tutorial for you. It includes six basic types of leaves so students can just begin to learn the different names, without getting too scientific.

My experience is that some are easiest to draw when you start with veins first, and the leaf shape around then, and others visa versa. Either way, I hope this easy leaf drawing tutorial comes in handy the next time you need some variety for your fall leaf art.

Media note: Crayons work great, but this can make a lovely watercolor painting too, as shown in my sample to the right. I recommended using real watercolor paper, a black Sharpie for a bleed-proof drawing and liquid watercolor paint. Extra dabs of color along the veins make for some fun wet-on-wet painting practice.

Materials to Draw Fall Leaves

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
