In the temperate regions of the world each year, something amazing happens as autumn arrives and the air begins to cool.

Entire forests of trees sense the coming of winter, and they prepare. The trees get ready to hibernate, protecting themselves from the cold. Green leaves stop producing food for the tree, and their coloration disappears. Yellow, red, orange, and even purple pigments remain, leaving us with beautiful fall colors.

These colors inspire artists and photographers alike.

In Japan, colorful leaves are known as koyo, and the activity of viewing them – called momijigari or “maple tree hunting” – has been popular for centuries. Many people travel in order to view the fall colors in their favorite places, be they rugged mountains or city parks. If you’d like to do this, don’t forget to pack an umbrella, just in case it starts raining.

In the United States, the practice of viewing autumn leaves is called leaf peeping. Popular autumn tourist areas include the New England states and the Appalachian Mountains along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Did you know? Not everyone gets to experience fall leaves. In the world’s tropical regions, trees don’t lose their leaves or change colors. Such trees are called evergreen. This is because there is no cold winter there, only wet and dry seasons.

Would you like to draw a windy autumn scene? All you will need is a pen or a pencil and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to shade your finished drawing.

​Step by Step Instructions for Drawing​ a Fall Scenery

Fall Scenery drawing – step 1

1. Begin by drawing two long, curved lines to form the horizon.

2. Draw two curved lines in a vertical position. These will form the trunk of the tree. Use several shorter curved lines to form the roots of the tree, enclosing it at the bottom.

3. Draw a pair of long “U” shaped lines side by side at the top of the tree. These form the tree’s branches. Then, use short, connected, curved lines to draw the cloudlike bunches of leaves. Notice the irregular shapes, as well as how the lines overlap to give the tree depth.

4. Draw a number of leaves falling from the tree. For each leaf, draw a curved line to form the stem and central vein. Then, use two curved lines meeting in a point to outline the leaf itself.

5. Texture the ground. Draw curved lines of different sizes. Near the tree, draw a tuft of grass using short, curved lines that meet in jagged points. Then, draw leaves on the ground. For each leaf, draw two curved lines that meet in points.

6. Many trees bear fruit in the fall. Draw round, circular fruit, both hanging from the tree and on the ground at its base. Did you notice that one piece of fruit is falling from the tree? Note the vertical lines that indicate its motion.

9. Texture the ground with additional curved lines, and draw more pointed fallen leaves. Draw more leaves adrift in the air as well; for each, begin with a line to form the stem, then draw the pointed leaf around it. Finally, draw wavy lines to indicate the motion of the blowing wind.

10. Color your scene. Is your tree still hanging on to the green of summer, or is it ablaze with the reds, yellows, and oranges of fall?
