One of my favorite topics to discuss on this blog is drawing, so that is what I shall be covering with the letter D. Palm trees are one of my favorite things to draw, and in the video below I illustrated how to create a Hawaiian landscape drawing easily with a grid.
The drawing with a grid method makes it easier to concentrate on one portion of the drawing, rather than being overwhelmed with the entire composition.
Once the drawing is completed, all you have to do is use the medium of choice to cover up the grid marks. Colored pencils and crayons might not completely cover up the lines, but the grid can be like looking out a window, or through a fence.
This is what the completed drawing looked like after I finished coloring over the grid marks with colored pencils and oil pastels. This drawing was a mixed media composition, in other words.
