Willow trees and shrubs are native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

They often grow near sources of water, and their roots can even invade underground pipes and swimming pools.

The weeping willow, whose branches droop to the ground, is perhaps the most well-known. Another popular variety is the corkscrew willow, which has twisted twigs and branches.

At times, willow trees have been personified as intelligent characters. For example, in Disney’s animated film Pocahontas, Grandmother Willow was a weeping willow tree with a face, a voice, and a personality.

She advised young Pocahontas, provided a playground for her animal friends Meeko and Flit, and even fought against the settlers.

Did you know? Certain willow species produce a chemical compound used in pain relievers. Some Native Americans chewed willow bark as a remedy for headaches.

This is why Pocahontas gives the injured John Smith a package with the words, “Here, it’s from Grandmother Willow’s bark. It will help with the pain.”

The Wind in the Willows, a children's novel by Kenneth Grahame, is another famous literary example.

It follows the adventures of Mole, Rat, Toad, and Badger and is portrayed in the Disney film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.

Description

This weeping willow tree ink drawing was executed with black ink and dipping pens.

My favorite black ink is Black cat Ink that turns waterproof when dry. I use various nip sizes of dipping pens but have also become very fond of Japanese bamboo pens.

They leave bold strokes and have to be re-dipped often. Especially for the weeping effect of this willow tree, I used a liner Brush

A tree like a willow can often be found near water bodies. She bends her long branches with small foliage directly into the water, which gives the picture a very beautiful look. Therefore, such a tree should definitely learn how to draw using improvised materials.
Materials needed:

  • sheet of paper;
  • colored pencils;
  • black marker;
  • eraser;
  • white gel pen;
  • HB pencil.

How to draw a willow for beginners

  • Step 1

    You will start at the bottom and then your way up. Start by creating lines. As you know, willows have surprisingly large roots that grow literally on the surface of the earth. You will need to make a foundation line for the root system and then draw two other lines for the torso and limbs.

  • Step 2

    Start using the principles you have drawn in step by sketching out the thick roots and then draw from the tree trunk.

  • Step 3

    Instead of drawing individual branches, I decided to make the limbs and leaves look like pieces of hair. Start sketching out the four sections of the limbs as you see here and be sure to make them look like they are crying.

  • Step 4

    Continue painting more and more sections of the willow as you see here, and don't forget to make some sections thicker, bigger, and longer than the rest.

  • Step 5

    Continue to sketch layer by layer until completed. You will notice that this willow will start to look like a multi-tiered wedding cake.

  • Step 6

    As you move up the limb tree, the layers get smaller and smaller. As you outline the limbs and hair like the leaves, you will also need to sketch in the detailing and texture definition at the same time. When the tree looks like the one you see here go to step seven.

  • Step 7

    I believe you have reached the last drawing step. Now all you have to do is sketch out the final top layer and then be sure to detail the willow so it looks absolutely beautiful. This is a great tree to use for landscape or landscaping. Erase visible guidelines or shapes.

My tree drawing test

The test is intended for both children and adults. The drawing of a tree gives a particularly rich material about the "content of life", that is, it reveals specific situations of the past or reflects the personality traits of the person being tested.

The tree seems to show long-term, unconscious feelings towards one's self, which mainly exist on a basic, primary level.

When performing a test, it is very important to keep track of the sequence of drawing details, all comments spontaneously made by the tester during drawing, as well as his emotions.

Task for the test

It is necessary to give the tested person a sheet of drawing paper, a simple pencil, an eraser and ask him to draw himself in the image of a tree. After the drawing is ready, offer to write about the life of a tree: how does it feel, how does it live at the moment in the forest?

Interpretation of the picture "My tree"

Determining the inclinations and characteristics of a person's character

He loves adventures, in which he gets a lot of new experiences.

2. The person who painted the fir tree has good organizational skills. But at the same time, by nature, such a person can be emotionally unbalanced and feel a sense of rejection.

3. People who paint oak are honest and straightforward, they belong to independent natures.

4. The person depicting the birch is vulnerable, emotional and sensitive.

5. Weeping willow speaks of dissatisfaction with the life situation of the painter, low mood, search for positive contacts, the desire to gain solid support.

6. A painted apple tree can express a woman's desire to have a child, in some other cases it emphasizes the infantilism of the artist's personality.

7. A tree with a lush crown is usually drawn by people with developed intuition.

8. A person who has depicted a tree with bare branches has the features of a childish spontaneity.

9. If a tree is depicted with birds on its branches, under the sun or moon, then this indicates a person's inclination to think over any life situations.

Location of the picture

1. If the drawn tree is on the right side of the sheet, this means that the person has a strong need to rely on someone's authority.

2. The location of the tree on the left side of the sheet indicates attachment to the mother and the past.

3. A tree drawn strictly in the center indicates the need to systematize one's life experience, and also points to something especially significant for this person.

4. The location of the tree in the upper part of the leaf indicates a desire to get rid of a depressive state.

5. The location of the tree at the bottom of the leaf indicates a feeling of self-flagellation and depression.

6. If a person turned a sheet of paper horizontally and drew a tree in this arrangement of the sheet, this indicates his prudence and independent character.

Some features of the picture

1. Additional objects in the picture speak of a person's emotionality and good imagination.

2. If a landscape is drawn around a tree, this indicates the sensitivity and sentimentality of the painter.

3. The drawn two trees show the attitude of the painter to the surrounding world and his life position.

4. Many trees - unwillingness to obey generally accepted norms.

Dimensions of the picture

1. A small image of a tree indicates that a person cannot express himself in life.

2. The image of a large tree indicates the inner freedom of a person.

Characteristic details of the picture

1. The presence of fruits on the tree is indicative of people striving for productive activity and achievement of the goal.

2. If a person draws a stump instead of a tree, this speaks of his contradictory nature.

3. A broken tree is an experienced shock.

4. An unfinished top of the tree indicates large unfinished plans.

5. A tree forked from the trunk is usually drawn by those who have very strong family ties with sisters and brothers and who are most often broken or lost. Also, such trees are often drawn by twins.

6. A branch instead of a tree speaks of human infantilism.

7. Dropped branches - low vitality and unwillingness to make any effort to overcome adverse life situations.

8. If the branches of the tree are directed upwards, then this indicates an optimistic attitude and enthusiasm, sometimes the author's desire for power.

9. Branches going in different directions mean a search in the expansion of contacts and self-affirmation of oneself.

10. If the trunk is depicted without branches, this indicates difficulties in establishing contacts.

11. Marking the place where the tree stands is typical for people who need to assert themselves and strengthen their place in life.

Image of foliage

Leaves symbolize the ability to establish contacts with the outside world, and also speak of the psychological security of a person in these contacts.

1. If the foliage of a tree is depicted as a wide fan, then this indicates a person's good interaction with others and his contact.

2. If the painted foliage is sparse and stunted, contact with the outside world is very weak.

1. Leaves of sharp form mean a person's desire to protect themselves from danger.

2. Foliage depicted schematically, similar to an empty circle, speaks of unmanifested aggressiveness.

3. Drawn falling or fallen leaves indicate disappointment in life, a feeling of loneliness.

4. Foliage directed upwards - the desire for leadership and the presence of a goal.

5. Leaves in large numbers, carefully drawn, indicate pedantry, but at the same time, sensitivity and aesthetic need of a person.

6. Circles in the foliage - a feeling of disappointment, loneliness, a desire to find peace.

7. The foliage of the tree, traced with curved lines, means an open acceptance of the surrounding world and receptivity.

8. Foliage in the form of a pattern - charm, friendliness, femininity, goodwill.

9. Leaf-mesh shows a desire to get away from troubles and problems.

Tree trunk

1. Trunk torn off the ground - lack of contact with the outside world.

2. The trunk, expanding downwards - the search for a stable and stable position in the surrounding world.

3. The trunk, tapering downwards - isolation and the desire to strengthen one's Self.

4. The traced bark on the trunk indicates caution and the need for protection.

5. The trunk, drawn from one line, means unwillingness to really look at things.

6. The trunk, not connected with the branches, is an attempt to escape from reality into dreams.

7. The trunk associated with branches and foliage speaks of the desire to preserve one's inner world and good intellect.

8. If a tree is depicted in such a way that the height of the trunk is greater than the size of the crown, we can talk about the predominance of a person's interest in specific things, his ability to live in the present moment.

9. If the size of the crown dominates in relation to the size of the trunk - the author of the picture has good self-control.

10. The trunk with an inclination to the left is drawn by a person giving in to aggression.

11. Trunk tilted to the right means that the person is looking for support.

12. The trunk, as if growing out of a circle, depicts a person who feels protected only in his environment.

13. The image on the trunk of the hollow speaks of a previous illness or operation, as well as sexual experiences and traumas. If a hollow with birds, then this indicates a need for protection and comfort.

Roots

The roots of a tree indicate the environment from which a person came out, and testify to his curiosity, impulsiveness.

1. The painted roots are smaller than the trunk - the desire to see what interests or is hidden.

2. Roots equal in size to the size of the trunk - a stronger curiosity than just seeing what is of interest.

3. Very long roots indicate excessive curiosity.

Hatching

Hatching a tree is of great importance in interpreting a drawing. It can be brighter or paler, have a different shape. Based on this and many other signs, one can draw certain conclusions about the psychological state of a person.

1. Darkening of foliage, trunk, roots is a sign of an alarm condition.

2. Homogeneous, not too intense shading indicates increased sensitivity.

3. Horizontal strokes indicate femininity, weakness, developed imagination.

4. Vertical strokes are a sign of perseverance and determination.

IMPORTANT!

If you apply the My Tree test to yourself, you can identify psychological problems, emotional states, and life resources that you are not even aware of. Let the knowledge you gain give you strength and serve as an impetus for the implementation of changes in yourself and your life.

Analysis of drawings for the test "My tree"

The presented drawings of trees were made by clients of all ages during psychological consultations in order to diagnose and identify the mental, emotional state of a person.

Fig. 1If you look closely at the drawings, you can note one common feature that connects them: the painted tree tells about the most intimate - about loneliness and feelings, about love and the desire to love, about hopes for the best. This serves as sufficient proof that any experience of a person, leaving a trace in his mind, will be indicated in one way or another in the drawing.

Andrei, 16 years old

Andrei is very vulnerable and tends to worry about anything, he constantly feels anxiety and worry about his actions and deeds.

He explains his drawing (fig. 1) as follows:

fig. 2

I am a tree growing in a garden. I would very much like not to be plucked from the fruits until they ripen.

Mikhail, 29 years old

Mikhail is very worried about parting with his girlfriend, who offered not to live together anymore. The girl is from another city, so Mikhail had to go to his home, recover at his previous job, but all his thoughts are connected with the girl. He, according to him, does not see others but her, and wants only one thing - to be together and not part.

The drawing (fig. 2) of Mikhail has the following explanation:

3

I see myself as a poplar. I want to take root deep. I want the sun to always shine and enough moisture. I want another tree nearby and no winter.

Irina, 54 years old

Irina is married, but does not live with her husband, so she needs warmth and care. Has a responsive nature. For many years he has suffered from insomnia, which is reflected both in the drawing (Fig. 3) - the trunk seems to be gnawed out in the middle - and in the description to it:

Fig. 4

I am an apple tree. I want to be loved, looked after me, and I would give my apples. I want hares not to gnaw on my bark. I want butterflies and birds to fly to me so that the sun shines.

The desire not to gnaw at “my bark” is exactly the torment that Irina experiences every night in insomnia.

Ekaterina, 46 years old

Ekaterina is in love with a man of her age, their romance is dragging on, and she dreams of getting married and is very worried because of the uncertainty of the relationship.

Fig. 5

Her laconic explanation of the drawing (Fig. 4) is in complete agreement with her longing:

I am a birch with green leaves, I want to grow next to a mighty and strong oak that would wrap its branches around me, leaning towards me.

Elena, 60 years old

The woman has been living alone for a very long time. There is an adult daughter who drinks, so their relationship is very complicated. Of course, such a situation depresses a woman, she is not left with fear of the future of her daughter, as well as a feeling of loneliness. The figure (Fig. 5) and the explanation to it reflect this:

Fig. 6

I am a birch tree, weak, tired, with bowed head, in constant fear, thoughtful. I want to be forever young, beautiful, slim, full of energy. Living not alone, but in a birch grove.

Nadezhda, 58 years old

Nadezhda lived in her first marriage for twenty-two years, buried her husband. After some time, she married a second time. She has been married for over twelve years.

Fig.7

Lives with her husband and mother-in-law, who is 89years. Helping an 85-year-old father. He loves flowers very much, he breeds them in the country. I recently planted a willow there and carefully cares for it. And the woman associates herself with the image of this tree (Fig. 6), explaining exactly why:

I see myself as a willow. The tree impresses with its love of life. I also love life. After pruning, it quickly recovers. I also strive to recover faster after all the blows of fate. I really love the branches of this tree, which seem to reach out to someone. I also get satisfaction if I help someone.

Tatyana, 36 years old

Young woman married for more than fourteen years, has a son. He works in a very large company, is engaged in a business that is developing successfully. By nature, she is very friendly, she is characterized by firmness of spirit. Wants to continue to grow in the professional sense, to achieve a higher position and success. Dreaming of a second child.

Fig. 8

Tatyana's positive attitude towards life and her own development is well reflected in her drawing (Fig. 7) and in the story about him:

I am a birch - strong, slender, flexible, in fresh greenery. I grow surrounded by other birches, flowers, grass, birds, in a clearing with a stream under the sun's rays. In my dense crown is a nest of birds. Birds also fly over the forest, their singing and chirping can be heard. In the clearing there is dense, bright green grass and a fast stream.

I would like to grow, get stronger, bloom, pollinate with a nearby birch and give seeds from which new trees will grow next to us.

Svetlana, 40 years old

9

Svetlana has been the director of a large research institute for a long time. Married, has a son. Currently, there is a question about the relocation of the team to another room. Construction is underway around the building of the institute, which causes great concern for both the leader and the entire team. The drawing (Fig. 8) and the commentary to it confirm this concern:

I am a young green birch growing in a green sunny meadow. I feel comfortable, because the sun shines gently and warmly on me, the rain waters the earth in time, which I am saturated with. My wishes: that this state last for many years, so that no one changes the purpose of this clearing, cuts down trees, and builds no buildings.

Ludmila, 55 years old

Ludmila is a person with a very strong spirit. She suffered a stroke five years ago. Rebuilt herself. He holds a very responsible position in one of the large enterprises. It is quite logical that she feels herself to be one of the most powerful trees (Fig. 9) and is ready to transfer her strength to others:

I am an oak.
