How to draw an island with palm trees


How to Draw an Island with a Palm Tree (or Two) -

Continuing with the tropical theme, let’s draw an island with a palm tree or two. And a sunrise. And a hammock. Castaways Welcome. 

If you’ve ever wanted to quit your job and run to a remote, tropical place to find some peace and quiet, this island is for you. We’ll even throw in a hammock for naps. I can’t promise delivered meals or coconut drinks, but anything can happen on an island like this one. 

Did you know that painting, drawing, and getting artistically visual helps you calm down, destress, and rejuvenate? (I enjoyed reading this article about it.) Maybe that remote island isn’t as far away as you think. 

Ready to find yours? Let’s get started.

Gather your supplies

  • Basic calligraphy supplies with Ziller ink
  • Basic Watercolor supplies 
  • Winsor & Newton Cotman Sketcher’s Pocket Box
  • Permanent rose pink, for mixing
  • How to Draw an Island Worksheet set, optional

Read on for extra details and hints or jump to the tutorial video.

Watercolor Sky Background

Start with a watercolor background. It will be wet over most of the page, so it’s a good idea to tape your watercolor paper to an artboard. 

Feel free to do your own kind of background or none at all (simple is beautiful too). I want to create a background that flows from the final drawing and has a bit of a sunset look. 

Before you begin, visualize your drawing: sizes, shapes, colors. As you paint, use colors in the approximate size of the drawing, in the approximate area, with a lighter tint of the color creating an abstract feel to the watercolor background. I’ll show you what I mean. 

Start painting in blue at the top of the page and work your way down. I’m drawing two palm trees on the island, so about a third of the way down the page, I’ll paint the blue only in the middle. Then, while the paint is still wet, I change my color to green on either side of the blue. 

Why? Because my palm leaves will be approximately in these locations.  

Watercolor Sunset Background

Next, I’ll use yellow watercolor over the area just below halfway down my paper and paint up to the green and blue areas. The sun is coming up.

When the sun rises, it touches the horizon at the ocean level, so the next area will be a darker blue for the ocean. Paint it straight across the page about two thirds the way down and lightly touching the yellow. Then, paint the sides of the ocean a little lower like they are coming around the island.

My island has a pink hammock strung between the palm trees, to symbolize a truly relaxing stay, so I will paint a light pink over the part of the yellow touching the blue ocean. In this way, the color will create a background for the hammock and add to the sunrise look.

Finally, the island needs an island, so paint some lumpy looking sand below and touching the ocean. 

Let it dry completely before you continue. 

Here’s a look at the background when it dries.

Draw a Palm Tree (or Two)

Now, it’s time to draw the island with a calligraphy pen. Draw in pencil first. When you switch to a calligraphy pen, remember to vary thick and thin strokes to accent different areas or add a hint of a shadow. 

Below are some ideas to get you started as you draw. (If you’d like ideas in printable form, look for these How to Draw an Island Worksheets.)

Use these ideas to to draw an island. (If you’d like ideas in printable form, use the Draw an Island Worksheets.)

When using a calligraphy pen (or any wet medium) it’s a good idea to start at the top of your drawing and work down. Keeping that in mind, start drawing your palm trees, leaves first. The branches all start at the top of the palm tree trunk and wave out, forming a circle, kind of like a flower. Draw lines on each side of every branch for the leaves that hang down and blow in the wind. 

As you draw the trunks, remember that palm trees don’t always grow straight. Feel free to give them a little curve or two. Add a few lines across the trunks for accents. 

Finally, draw a hammock between the trees. It’s all ready for a good snooze. 

Here are the pieces put together.

Draw an Island with a Welcome Sign in Calligraphy 

Draw an island next. It can be as lumpy as you would want your sandy remote island to be. 

Then, just for fun, draw a little welcome sign. Use calligraphy script to write, “Castaways welcome,” on it.

Let the ink dry completely before moving on.

Add More Watercolor

Sometimes a drawing looks amazing on a watercolor background by itself. But this time, I want it to pop off the page, so we’ll add a couple more layers of color. 

Work from top to bottom, starting with those palm leaves. Use a darker green paint to follow the shape and lines of the leaves. With a small brush, paint around and between the lines you made with your calligraphy pen. The palm branches will start to fill out.  

(In the video, I painted a light brown on the palm tree trunks before painting the palm tree branches. In hindsight, it wasn’t really necessary. Leave it in or take it out … it’s up to you.)

Now, you’re ready to add a darker brown to the trunks of the palm tree drawings. Try to keep it darkest on the left sides of the trunks. It will kind of blend together, and that’s okay. 

Paint the hammock a darker shade of pink next. Then, It will get one final layer to make the inside stand out from the outside, but we have to wait for this layer to dry first. 

Last, paint the sand with a darker sand color, leaving areas of the background show through to make it look more like sand disturbed by footprints. 

When the hammock is dry, paint one more layer of pink to show off it’s center sleeping area.

And you’re finished! I hope you feel more rested already.

Draw an island. How to draw an island How to draw an island with a palm tree and the sea

" Island in the sea-ocean" - drawing Pentyukhova Alexandra (7 years). Teacher Temnova E.S.

It was fun to walk in the jungle, but it's time to go home. As soon as our travelers climbed up, a sharp gust of wind carried the balloon. The guys were seriously scared, because under them was no longer the earth, but the smooth expanse of the ocean.

But what is there in the distance? This is an island! We make a stop.

For work we need:

  • gouache or finger paints,
  • brush,
  • foam sponge,
  • simple pencil,
  • watercolor sheet A3,
  • baby hands
  • and good mood.

1. First, draw a horizon line on the sheet with a simple pencil

2. Outlining the outlines of the future island

3. Draw the sky. To do this, add a little blue gouache to white gouache and mix. Then we paint the sky with a sponge, printing movements.

We try to paint over “not tightly”, leaving white spots. This will create the effect of clouds.

4. We pass to the island. With a sponge we apply yellow gouache to the outlines of the island.

5. The island can't be perfectly yellow, so add some orange or light brown.

6. Draw the sea.

The sea must be different in hue from the sky. Preparing paint. To do this, add white gouache to blue. And with a sponge we paint over the “sea”. Also, as in the sky, we leave white gaps. This will create the impression of sea foam, waves.

Do not forget that the sea is not pure blue, but a slightly greenish tint. Therefore, when we paint over the “sea” with blue paint, we will add a little green to the remaining paint. On top of the blue background, let's go through a new shade. The sea is ready!

7. We “plant” a palm tree on the island. We paint the palm with green paint and put an imprint. Please note that the palm is located with the fingers to the island.

8. Dip your finger in brown paint and draw a palm tree trunk.

9. What is a sea-ocean without a miracle-yudo-fish-whale?

We put blue paint on the palm and put the imprint of the palm somewhere in the sea.

10. With white gouache we draw the whale's teeth, a fountain and waves on the sea.

11. Settle a monkey on the island. The torso is the imprint of the thumb, the head is the index finger, and the ears are the little finger. We paint on the arms, legs, tail with a brush.

12. While the whale's smile dries, draw the sun. We decided to paint it with a brush.

Draw rays with your finger.

Drawing island in the sea - step 10

Welcome to an island in the sea!

“Island in the Sea” — drawing by Aleksandr Pentyukhov, 7 years old

Here is such a funny drawing of an island in the sea-ocean turned out at Alexandra .

From time to time I want to run away from civilization, the free Internet and semi-finished products, products with GMOs. Walled up in a concrete jungle, and by the time you get out of here, you will forget the purpose of your life. And where do you go? What is considered freedom now? The ability to do whatever you want? And I want to take my legs in my hands and escape to a small island surrounded by water and heaven, and most importantly - not to owe anything to anyone. When will this opportunity arise? Don't know. But I know that I can tell you how to draw an island with a pencil . I would like a bigger island, maybe even the Kuril Islands. Or, for example, the Desert Island, which is near Australia. There is, however, absolutely nothing there. No snakes, no kangaroos. One sand and water all around. Everyone dreams of an island overgrown with bananas, coconuts, cola fridges refreshing juicy fruits.

I'll tell you more about the promised land, how much of it is left there:

  • Kerguelen. A piece of land in the middle of the ocean. No one lives there, except for 100-150 French scientists. That is, there are no normal people there, let's write it down as deserted;
  • about. Pitcairn. State with a population of 50 people. Once upon a time, a British ship sailed there, and there was no strength to return back. It’s good that they stole Tahitian women for themselves in time, and they lived in peace. What to do there? Well, fish to catch, and cook it. And eat fish. Have a fish race with blackjack and Tahitian girls.
  • Tristan da Cunha. The most civilized uninhabited island. If you want to run away, but the addiction to the box and the Internet has you by the kidneys, this is your paradise. There is also TV and internet. Although it is located 3360 km from South America. How, you ask? Hell knows. For example, Wi-Fi in the toilet is no longer pulling for me, but here things are like that.

Down with doubts, let's move on to drawing.

How to draw an island with a pencil step by step

Step one. Let's start with the horizon line. With a straight thick line, we divide the sheet almost in half horizontally. The scribbles on top are clouds, I guess, and the pie in the middle is an island. Step two. Okay, I agree, the clouds did not turn out very well. We remove them and draw wavy clouds more carefully. We remove the top of the island, instead of it - thick grass on the ground. Slightly twitch the pencil. Step three. From the diet, we will only have coconuts. We plant the entire island with palm trees, where they fit in, so that there is not even a place left to sit down. We will live on a palm tree. Fourth step. Add more grass under the trees. There is an island, but it's not in the air, is it? We hatch the lower part so that the void becomes like water. We finish drawing wavy lines around the perimeter. Here is our island, without natives, snakes and French scientists. Just what is there to do? And I'll leave that to your imagination. And you write me ideas for future lessons here.

Draw yourself other beautiful places and landscapes. For example, such.

Now we continue to draw palm trees, this time we will consider how to draw three palm trees on an island in the open ocean in stages with a pencil.

Let's take this picture as a basis.

Just below the middle of the sheet, mark the horizon, then a lonely island.

Let's draw three trunks, which is straight in the middle, and the sides are slightly inclined to the side in which they are located. If you only need one palm tree, draw one trunk and choose this one, where the leaves are drawn on that particular trunk.

We mark the location of the leaves near the palm tree on the right with curves.

Draw leaves. All pictures are high resolution, so click on them to view the details.



We begin to draw the second palm tree, which is in the middle. At the foot of the right palm draw a bush using or curls. Make the trunk embossed. In the following figure you can see an approximate version.

Click on the picture and carefully look at how the leaves are arranged, draw them.

We finish the second palm and proceed to the third from the left. Draw bushes again using the swirl method for bushes on the island.

We draw leaves and trunks at palm trees.

On the island, draw a shadow from shrubs and palm trees, also show with dots and small dashes that it is sandy.

Paint over the palm trees to simulate the waves of the sea. We shade the sky from above and draw clouds with an eraser, a little lower in a light tone we draw clouds, only barely visible. Our drawing on the island is ready.

    You can draw an island with a pencil step by step as follows:

    Stages of drawing an island:

    1) Sketching a palm tree and an island;

    2) Then we draw a palm tree, draw waves and a sun:

    3) Draw a ship like this:

    Here is our result:

    And thus:

    Various options for drawing the island are possible. I have watched a bunch of videos. Since I am a so-so artist, I chose the simplest option. Where to draw an island can also be done without much difficulty. So let's look:

    I don't think it's a difficult task if you just imagine the scenery of the island.

    You just need to draw waves of water, sand and some trees, usually we all imagine a palm tree, and then if you want you can paint the water with a blue pencil and the trees with green.

    Video instructions to help:

    An island in the ocean must not be inhabited. Like in a cartoon from childhood. I really liked the lesson on drawing the island with such a bright picture:

    Ideal for drawing, right? Moreover, as it turned out, in order to depict such a cozy clearing in the ocean, much is not needed. It is enough to follow the following step-by-step instructions:0002 Island can be drawn from above, or we can show that we are almost next to it.

    Let's draw an island with palm trees. First we need to draw a horizon line. That is, we draw a horizontal line. Next, we sketch. Let's outline the clouds, the location of the island. We will place it on the horizon line. like this:

    If you don't like something, just erase it with an eraser. Now let's draw the palm trees that we talked about earlier. They are easy to draw. We draw a stem and greens.

    Let's not forget to revive the island). Let's draw grass. Since the island is at a decent distance and it is impossible to see the grass, we draw small quot; islandsquot; herbs. We will show the water around the island with lines.

    To draw an island, you need to draw a small piece of land in the middle of the sea and show palm trees on it - an attribute of the island.

    Draw the horizon line and outlines of the island.

    You can use only one palm tree instead of three anywhere on the island.

    Let's outline how the leaves are arranged on one of the palms on the right.

    At the base of the palm tree, imagine a small shrub with curlicues, make the trunk clearer and more prominent. We begin to draw the leaves of another palm tree and then clearly draw the leaves.




Sea, sun, waves and an island! Today we will tell you how to draw an island. Simply amazing drawing lessons that you will definitely like are selected. There will be four examples in total, from which you can choose one specific one or draw all at once! For work, we need a wide range of tools, which includes pencils, a sharpener, an eraser, colored pencils or colored markers.

Island in the ocean

In the first example, we will look at how to draw an island in a blue ocean with a pencil. It cannot be said that this example is banal, but nevertheless, similar drawings of the islands are very common. This is probably because such a landscape is very beautiful!

On land there will be small bushes and three fingers. The first stage will just be devoted to drawing bushes. In appearance, they resemble clouds.

Three palm trees will grow directly from these bushes. Two of them will be slightly tilted, and the central one will stand straight.

We color the bushes in green, and also in yellow we mark the borders of the beach of the island.

We color the palm trees, and then we move on to work on the ocean, we paint it, of course, in blue. It is worth noting one important point, between the yellow land and the blue sea there should be a small empty white space. Thus, the drawing will be more realistic.

Island arrival drawing

Let's figure out how to draw a picture of the island where the pirates arrived to hide their treasures. In the previous example, we depicted a small island that was visible from all sides. This time we will draw a huge island, in such a way that only one of its beaches will be visible.

The drawing process will take only three simple steps. First we need to make a pencil sketch. Then we will detail and color it.

We take colored pencils. Make sure they are sharp and then paint the berm and wood. Then we take the blue color and draw the waves.

In the final step, we need to color the plants on the horizon in green, draw the sky and the shadow of the trees. And of course, do not forget to color the pirate ship, which adds some zest to our drawing.

If some moments seemed difficult or incomprehensible to you, we recommend that you watch a video with a live drawing process of this example.

A simple example for children

This drawing technique is just for you if you are looking for how to draw an island for a child. There are no complex elements or chiaroscuro here that could cause difficulties when drawing for children.

So, first we have to draw a simple pencil sketch of the island. It is not necessary to try to make all the lines perfect and neat. At this stage, our main task is to draw a sketch of the future drawing, and in case of errors, we simply take an eraser and erase them.

With the help of colored pencils we color our picture. As in the first paragraph, the island will turn out to be small.

We refine such small details as the sun, clouds and waves.

This drawing is complete, but you still have some empty space in the water. To somehow fill it, you can depict dolphins, a ship, a boat or something else. You can not limit your imagination and draw a huge octopus!

Desert Island

The final example of this article will show you how to draw a deserted island in the open ocean. Yes, we have already considered similar drawing techniques, but this time there are still some differences.

As before, in the first paragraph we draw a simple pencil sketch.

After the sketch of the drawing is ready, you need to use colored pencils and start coloring. At this stage, we will color part of the island green, and then we will work on the sea. Remember that in the future you will need to draw the coast, so leave space between the blue water and green plants.

We paint the coast yellow, and also continue to work on the sea. In the distance, the depth is greater, which means that the color in which we will paint the water will be darker.

We finalize our drawing by painting the sky, the sun and the ship. After that, the picture can be considered finished!

How to make a treasure map

Take a piece of wrapping paper of the right size. If the paper is white, it is better to tint it "antique". for this you need to make the background light brown. Let dry.

Draw on the sheet a map of the area where the treasure has already been hidden or will be hidden. For example, draw a plan for a yard or summer cottage: buildings, paths, trees. Mark the place where the treasure is buried with a symbol. If you wish, you can encrypt the map - for example, instead of drawing a picture of a house, draw a rebus in which the word "house" will be encrypted.

Gently burn the sheet on which the map is drawn around the edges on all sides. Fold the card several times. Ready!

Who among us did not play pirates in childhood? Who hasn't dreamed of finding a treasure? Everything is in your hands: hide your treasures, draw a map. Well, let the finder have a prize! - wrapping paper
- gouache
- brush
- matches or a lighter
- felt-tip pens The sponge, of course, must be clean.

If you do not have a ready-made bag for painting, do not despair, henna can be brewed at home. To do this, boil 500 ml of water, add two teaspoons with a top of ground coffee and black tea, boil for an hour and then strain. During this time, sift 30-40 g of pure green henna powder through a fine sieve twice. Gradually add the hot liquid to the powder until the paste has the consistency of icing sugar. It should be more thick than liquid; you can dilute it later. If lumps appear, rub the paste through a sieve. One to two teaspoons of lime juice will intensify the color. Refrigerate the paste for three hours before use. It can be applied with a stick, brush, toothpick or from a syringe-bag. The latter can be easily made by yourself. To do this, you need to take a piece of durable plastic 20x16 cm in size (a bag for garbage or for freezing food), roll it up from the corner into a bag, glue it well along all the seams and along the tip (for example, with adhesive tape or adhesive tape). Fill the bag two-thirds with paste using a teaspoon, bend the top edge several times and secure with adhesive tape. In the sharp lower edge, pierce a small hole with a needle. But - a small one!. So that the henna comes out evenly and neatly. hours .. You don’t need to scrape off the dried henna yourself - let it fall off by itself - the drawing will hold on stronger. After drying, do not wet your hand for at least 12 hours

COMPETITIONS FOR CHILDREN
(for birthdays and children's holidays)

1. Sit on a stool, tuck your legs in and, without touching the floor with your legs and arms, get with your teeth a box of matches standing "on the butt" at one of the rear legs of the stool. You can spin on the stool as you like.

2. Soskoplui
The competition is surprisingly simple!
Whoever spit out the pacifier the farthest wins.

3. Children are divided into two teams. One team will "cook" soup (name vegetables), and the other will "compote" (name fruit). They speak in turn. The team with the most words wins.
Option: not teams play, but two people.

4. Two teams participate in the relay. On a signal, representatives from each team ride the pots in a race to a certain mark and return back, pass the pots to other team members, etc. Which team will complete the task faster?

How to draw a regular oval

First, let's find out what an oval is (from Latin ovum - egg): a convex closed flat curve without corner points, for example, an ellipse.
Now let's find any cup in the household and put it at a small distance from us (up to 1 meter).
If you are sitting much higher than the cup, for example, you are sitting on an ordinary chair, and they put it on a high chair, then you see the ellipse almost not flattened. If you place the cup somewhere at eye level (the so-called horizon line), then the oval will turn into a narrow strip with rounded edges.
So, let's choose the position for the cup.

Now, armed with a pencil, draw by hand (without the help of a ruler), two perpendicular lines.
The one that is vertical is very important - it is called the axis of symmetry, and is the basis for all further constructions.

The next step is related to the sighting method. It consists in covering one eye, stretching out a hand with a pencil and noticing on the pencil what is the length. It should be marked with two extreme points on the horizontal axis so that the distance to the left and right is the same.

Now also with a pencil, we repeat the same operation, but now for the vertical axis, to determine the width of the future oval. We mark it with two extreme points, symmetrical with respect to the center.

We also draw the next pair of lines through two horizontal points parallel to those already drawn. According to the rules of perspective in the figure, parallel horizontal lines receding into depth have vanishing points outside the sheet of paper. It is neither possible nor necessary to draw a continuation of these lines in order to trace where they converge. In drawing, the directions of these parallel lines are determined by eye.

So we get the last missing point on the vertical axis. She was needed in order to draw an arc through it, in the figure farthest from us.
We also draw the arc closest to us.
Gently erase the auxiliary lines (axes parallel to straight lines).
At the end of the work, the figure clearly shows that the distance from the center of the cup to its back wall is much shorter than the distance from the front wall to the center. Look at nature, is it so? If you did everything according to the instructions, then drawing the lower oval of the cup (bottom) in perspective will not cause you any difficulties.

It's nice not to depend on computer programs, but to be able to draw by hand. Until now, even among computer designers, this is highly appreciated. What can we say about ordinary users, for whom it is sometimes hard work to master these programs, but freehand drawings

How to draw a picture with paints

Choose watercolors. They are the easiest way to start painting a picture. They can convey all shades and give brightness when translucent. Choose whether you want to paint on wet or dry surfaces. When drawing on a wet surface, the outlines of objects are blurred, which is useful in landscape compositions or when filling vegetables and fruits in the background.

Take drawing paper - it does not swell from excess water, and the places that need to be corrected can be easily washed off with foam rubber. Position the paper at a 30-40 degree angle so that the ink flows evenly.

Sketch the main objects in pencil. If this is a still life, then determine the location of the table or other surface and the fruit and vegetable composition. If this is a portrait, then take into account the proportions of a person, and if it is a landscape, then light sketches will be enough here - colors will play the main role. When drawing with paints, especially watercolors, consider the fact that you need to think over the shade of each stroke in advance. You can correct the error only with the help of wet foam rubber. Then, on an already well-dried surface, apply the desired strokes.

Paint the general background with foam rubber or a wide squirrel brush. When painting large areas, make sure that there is enough paint on the brush. Apply the background from a light place to a dark one. Please note that the effect of white when painting with watercolors is achieved only due to unpainted or well-washed areas. Be careful not to tear or roll the paper.

Identify the sunny side and shaded areas in the painting. Based on this, sketch all the objects. Mix colors on the palette - in the picture, the overlay of color layers can lead to a simple distortion of the color of dark shades. Apply each next stroke next to the previous one with a slightly dampened brush for a smooth transition.

Pictures painted with colors have the gift of attracting more and more eyes. The unique play of shades allows you to convey everything to the smallest detail. But how exactly to draw a picture with paints? - drawing paper,

How to draw an anchor

Draw a modern anchor design with two sharp edges at the bottom. Draw a vertical line in the middle of the sheet, slightly narrowed at the top and widened at the bottom. This will be the anchor spindle. Draw a circle around the upper border of the spindle, the so-called. eye - a place for attaching a cable or rope for raising or lowering an anchor. At the top of the vertical, draw a horizontal line - the stock. Secure the bottom of the spindle with a large tick.

Draw the individual parts of the anchor in more detail. Draw the spindle in the form of two straight lines, draw each of which below drawn in different directions, forming an anchor, its main part. This way you get two anchor horns. Line junctions should be smooth. Make each horn voluminous by adding another line that repeats the outline of the anchor. Draw lops on the tips of the horns - wide plates with sharp outer peaks. Please note that the heel of the anchor should be sharp enough.

Draw the stem in detail. From an inclined straight line at a short distance, draw another one with the same slope, but slightly convex, thus delimiting the lateral and lower parts of the stem. Connect both lines with a few vertical strokes. Now draw another sloping line repeating the outline and continue the vertical strokes at an angle of slightly more than 90 degrees. Draw a neck above the upper border of the stem - draw a small rectangle and divide it in half with a vertical line. Make the eye ring double.

Darken parts of the anchor: the lower part of the blade and the right horn. Shade the stem with short lines and the neck, its right side. Also darken the section of the spindle that goes along the right border of the vertical - the drawn anchor is ready.

The anchor is a special metal structure that is designed to secure the ship in one place. It has many different types, but the basis is always the same - a heavy bottom, which is fixed on a straight metal vertical. The drawn anchor is most often used as a sea symbol. - landscape sheet;

How to draw a cat with a pencil

A cat is one of those animals that cause sympathy in people of different ages. Naturally, I want to draw it, but as realistic as possible. And what is in it: four paws, torso, head, ears, tail, and grouping all this together - the cat is ready. It's not difficult, but you have to do everything correctly and in order, so as not to disappoint yourself and those around you with your creative talent.

First, as a rule, we make a sketch. We draw the main forms of the animal, that is, the head and torso. We draw a circle for the head and a rough elongated oval for the body on the sheet.
Now we are working on the lines. They should not be rough, as we sketched out at first. Giving the shape and position of our cat, we try to make smooth, smoothly flowing lines.

Next is the muzzle. We draw a cross on a circle that is the head. The cross is needed to show where the animal's eyes, nose and mouth will be located.
We have triangles in the corners - these are the ears of a cat, which is important for such a predator.

Next, draw the cat's paws and paint on top of the tail.
For greater realism, we also draw fur.
The cat is almost ready.
We erase unnecessary sketches and lines. After we finish some nuances (the location of the hind legs, fur, the shadow of the animal).

The last moment the antennae are drawn, remember what they are like in cats and reproduce the same ones. Your cat should turn out excellent, experiment further.

Drawing is an art that cannot be taken away from its owner. People from young to old can create on a piece of paper whatever they please. If you are just learning and want to draw beautifully, say, a cat, then you are here! Blank album sheet, pencils (colored).

Pastel drawing - Egyptian Mau cat

1) In this lesson I will tell you how to draw an Egyptian Mau cat. These are very beautiful cats with large eyes of green currant or yellow-amber color. The Egyptian Mau has a wonderful and unique color. This is their distinguishing feature. For this picture, we need a pastel sheet of dark blue A4 size. With a white, well-sharpened pastel pencil, we will sketch.

2) Move on to drawing the eyes and nose. For the eyes, use green, yellow, dark orange, black pastel pencils. Gently shade the eye, make the pupil black, at the end add highlights with a white pastel pencil. For the nose, use white, pink, black, red pastel pencils. Shade lightly with a white pencil around the eyes and nose and rub with your finger. When drawing such small details, your pencils must be well sharpened!

3) Shade the ear first with a pink pastel pencil, and on top with a white pastel pencil. Rub everything with your finger. Add black shades and rub. Now sharpen a white pastel pencil well and draw white hairs with quick and light movements.

4) Shade the cat's head with a white and gray pastel pencil. Somewhere you can add a few strokes of blue. After that, rub everything with your finger.

5) We begin to refine the details. With a white pencil, with small strokes, we imitate the growth of wool. Draw the stripes with small strokes of black.

How to draw a daffodil

Draw a pencil sketch in the middle of the sheet and arrange the individual parts. In the upper part, draw a hexagon - the basis of the flower itself. To do this, draw two equal trapeziums with a common base, and with convex parts facing on opposite sides. Draw the middle in the form of an oval and depict the stem and leaf with simple strokes.

Draw the details of the daffodil more precisely. From each vertex of the hexagon, draw straight lines converging towards the middle. These lines will be the vertical axes for the flower petals. Mark the midpoints of the lines. Now, from each vertex, draw strokes expanding to the indicated points. Next, bring the strokes to the middle of the flower already in the form of straight parallel lines.

To draw a narcissus, draw the petals of the flower with smooth lines - smooth out the main contours. Depict a slight wrapping of the petals with wavy lines located near their walls. Draw the middle of the daffodil. First, make the borders of the oval jagged with a small step. On the right side of the oval, draw a small dome, making the middle more voluminous.

Draw part of the stem of the daffodil in the form of a tubular arc connecting the flower itself and the straight thin stem with the wide side directed towards the petals. Draw a leaf of a plant as an elongated narrow one with a pointed top.

Sketch the flower with a simple pencil. Shade the middle of the narcissus tightly with straight thin lines radiating from the middle to the borders of the oval. On the petals, depict the rays going along the vertical middle line. Shade both the left side of the stem and the top of the daffodil leaf.

Draw the flower itself in yellow. Make the middle tone darker. Sketch the leaf and stem in an even green tone.

Narcissus is one of the first spring flowers. So gentle and at the same time strict, impregnable, noticing only its own beauty. Such beauty can be kept for a long time only on a piece of paper. - landscape sheet;

First, think about how you would like to draw an icon. A concept or idea is a very important part of a drawing. Ask yourself what your badge will symbolize. Think of an interesting drawing. Make a couple of sketches. If you're out of ideas, go online and look at pictures of different icons, maybe something will come to your mind.

Get started, use a pencil to mark the shape of the badge. As a rule, the icon is round, so to make it easier for yourself and pay more attention to the content of the icon design, take a stencil. For these purposes, any round object that can be attached to paper and circled with a pencil can serve you. Use a jar of cream or a saucer, depending on the size of your badge. You can also use a compass.

Once you have decided on the size, start painting. You can draw your favorite animal or flower, write the name of a loved one or your favorite expression, whatever comes to your mind. Make a rough drawing with a soft pencil, and correct the extra lines with an eraser. After that, think about what color scheme suits your drawing, first take watercolor, when the paint dries, take markers or gouache and make the drawing brighter.

Dandelions in watercolor.

Well, the first flowers have blossomed. Among them are my favorite dandelions. I have already shown how to paint dandelions with oils, and now I want to paint them with watercolors.

First, simply with lemon and yellow paint, draw colored "blots" of future colors.

Let's outline the place where the white balls of ripe dandelions will be located. To do this, with almost transparent paint and a thin brush, draw a circle and place small translucent spots in it. The center of the dandelion ball will be much darker than the edges. For spots, you can mix gray, blue and then add a little light yellow paint for a shade.

With the addition of ocher and light red paint, use a thin brush to draw the petals of yellow flowers, not forgetting where the light comes from.

Draw the background. You can first wet the paper, or you can simply paint over with a thick brush, bypassing the flowers and balls, avoiding strong streaks and drying. Above and to the left of the yellow flowers, unpainted white areas of paper should be left, like a bright glare of light.

Mix pale green and yellow paint and draw dandelion stems. In some places, you can add a red tint. Gradually, we will begin to draw the leaves, leaving the stems unpainted.

In the next pass, we will intensify the dark color, again leaving the leaves and new stems and blades of grass unpainted. At the same time, draw a background around the white balls with strokes, making their edge uneven, loose. For the background, it is better to take a thicker brush and mix dark green, pale blue, yellow, a little purple.

How to draw a butterfly
1
Start your drawing by drawing guide lines. First, draw a line that will become the axis of symmetry of the butterfly's body, along it the head, chest and abdomen will be located. Second, mark a dot in the middle of this line. Draw two lines from it on each side, these auxiliary elements will set the direction of the upper and lower wings of butterflies. Make sure that the angles between the corresponding lines and the axis of symmetry are the same.
2
Draw an elongated oval located on the axis of symmetry. Divide it into three parts: the first, very small, corresponds to the head, the other two are approximately the same in length - the chest and abdomen of the Lepidoptera beauty.
3
Highlight the eyes on the head, they are set on the sides, as well as rather long antennae and proboscis, in a calm state it is folded into a spiral. If you are drawing a specific butterfly, make sure that it has a sucking mouthpart, and not, for example, a chewing one, like some families of Lepidoptera.
4
Draw the chest. All the "limbs" of the butterfly, if you can call them that, are attached to the body in this particular area. Mark three segments on the chest. On the second and third from the head, it will be necessary to draw the wings, but it is better to leave their drawing for later. Draw three pairs of butterfly legs in the form of dashes with pronounced joints.
5
Draw the butterfly's abdomen as an oval. Keep in mind that it is quite mobile.
6
Start painting the wings. If you are depicting a specific butterfly, study its appearance, the shape of the plates, their colors, and the structure of the cells. If you want to draw a collective image, you can come up with the shape and venation (the presence of cells on the wing plate), as well as colors.
7
Color the picture. To color a representative of an existing species of butterflies, use the desired shades, look on the Internet for how female and male individuals look. For a fictional butterfly, mix and match the colors you like.
In order to draw a butterfly, it is important to imagine the structure of its body, the shape and venation of the wings, to take into account in the image the color features of one or another species of Lepidoptera. - paper;

How to draw a boy

How to draw a boy

Have a sheet of paper and a pencil ready. Think about the position in which you will have the figure of a boy and, depending on this, place a sheet of paper vertically or horizontally. Using a simple pencil, start sketching.

First, use ovals and circles to draw the human pose. Do not rush to immediately erase the failed parts of the drawing with an eraser. It is better to use a pencil with light strokes to outline the correct direction, and then edit the drawing with an eraser. Check proportions. The head should fit in the body seven times, elbows at waist level, palms are the same size as the face. Measure your arms and legs with a pencil so that they are the same length.

Start drawing the details. Smooth out corners, outline clothes and hair. On the head, draw a vertical midline, a horizontal line for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Refine the details of the boy's clothing, then draw in the eyes, nose and mouth following the outlined lines on the head. Then proceed to the ears and hairstyle. If necessary, draw a headdress.

Provide the drawing with attributes (if necessary) - a typewriter, a balloon, a bouquet of flowers, etc. Erase all invisible and auxiliary lines with the help of an eraser. Consider the background and its details. Choose materials to work in color and think about the palette of your drawing. Do your work in color.

Select the direction of the light. Draw a shadow on the drawing. Start filling in the drawing from the background from top to bottom. Then move on to drawing the figure of a boy. Do not rush to immediately apply the main color, do it gradually, specifying the details. If you are working with a pencil, apply strokes to the shape of the body, clothes. When working with paints, also try to keep the volume, playing with light, highlights and shadows.

To draw a boy, you need to correctly draw a sketch of a human figure. Only then you need to give it the appropriate features and, if necessary, draw any attributes. -paper;

Now we continue to draw palm trees, this time we will consider how to draw three palm trees on an island in the open ocean in stages with a pencil.

Let's take this picture as a basis.

Just below the middle of the sheet, mark the horizon, then a lonely island.

Let's draw three trunks, which is straight in the middle, and the sides are slightly inclined to the side in which they are located. If you only need one palm tree, draw one trunk and choose this one, where the leaves are drawn on that particular trunk.

We mark the location of the leaves of the palm tree on the right with curves.

Drawing leaves. All pictures are high resolution, so click on them to view the details.



We start to draw the second palm tree, which is in the middle. At the foot of the right palm draw a bush using or curls. Make the trunk embossed. In the following figure you can see an approximate version.

Click on the picture and carefully look at how the leaves are arranged, draw them.

We finish the second palm and proceed to the third from the left. Draw bushes again using the swirl method for bushes on the island.

Draw leaves and trunks of palm trees.

On the island, draw a shadow from shrubs and palm trees, also show with dots and small dashes that it is sandy.

Paint over the palm trees to simulate the waves of the sea. We shade the sky from above and draw clouds with an eraser, a little lower in a light tone we draw clouds, only barely visible. Our drawing on the island is ready.

    You can draw an island with a pencil step by step as follows:

    Stages of drawing an island:

    1) Sketching a palm tree and an island;

    2) Then we draw a palm tree, draw waves and a sun:

    3) Draw a ship like this:

    Here is our result:

    And thus:

    Various options for drawing the island are possible. I have watched a bunch of videos. Since I am a so-so artist, I chose the simplest option. Where to draw an island can also be done without much difficulty. So let's look:

    I don't think it's a difficult task if you just imagine the scenery of the island.

    You just need to draw waves of water, sand and some trees, usually we all imagine a palm tree, and then if you want you can paint the water with a blue pencil and the trees with green.

    Video instructions to help:

    An island in the ocean must not be inhabited. Like in a cartoon from childhood. I really liked the lesson on drawing the island with such a bright picture:

    Ideal for drawing, right? Moreover, as it turned out, in order to depict such a cozy clearing in the ocean, much is not needed. It is enough to follow the following step-by-step instructions:0002 Island can be drawn from above, or we can show that we are almost next to it.

    Let's draw an island with palm trees. First we need to draw a horizon line. That is, we draw a horizontal line. Next, we sketch. Let's outline the clouds, the location of the island. We will place it on the horizon line. like this:

    If you don't like something, just erase it with an eraser. Now let's draw the palm trees that we talked about earlier. They are easy to draw. We draw a stem and greens.

    Let's not forget to revive the island). Let's draw grass. Since the island is at a decent distance and it is impossible to see the grass, we draw small quot; islandsquot; herbs. We will show the water around the island with lines.

    To draw an island, you need to draw a small piece of land in the middle of the sea and show palm trees on it - an attribute of the island.

    Draw the horizon line and outlines of the island.

    You can use only one palm tree instead of three anywhere on the island.

    Let's outline how the leaves are arranged on one of the palms on the right.

    At the base of the palm tree, imagine a small shrub with curlicues, make the trunk clearer and more prominent. We begin to draw the leaves of another palm tree and then clearly draw the leaves.

From time to time you want to run away from civilization, the free Internet and semi-finished products, products with GMOs. Walled up in a concrete jungle, and by the time you get out of here, you will forget the purpose of your life. And where do you go? What is considered freedom now? The ability to do whatever you want? And I want to take my legs in my hands and escape to a small island surrounded by water and heaven, and most importantly - not to owe anything to anyone. When will this opportunity arise? Don't know. But I know that I can tell you how to draw an island with a pencil . I would like a bigger island, maybe even the Kuril Islands. Or, for example, the Desert Island, which is near Australia. There is, however, absolutely nothing there. No snakes, no kangaroos. One sand and water all around. Everyone dreams of an island overgrown with bananas, coconuts, cola fridges refreshing juicy fruits.

I'll tell you more about the promised land, how much of it is left there:

  • Kerguelen. A piece of land in the middle of the ocean. No one lives there, except for 100-150 French scientists. That is, there are no normal people there, let's write it down as deserted;
  • about. Pitcairn. State with a population of 50 people. Once upon a time, a British ship sailed there, and there was no strength to return back. It’s good that they stole Tahitian women for themselves in time, and they lived in peace. What to do there? Well, fish to catch, and cook it. And eat fish. Have a fish race with blackjack and Tahitian girls.
  • Tristan da Cunha. The most civilized uninhabited island. If you want to run away, but the addiction to the box and the Internet has you by the kidneys, this is your paradise. There is also TV and internet. Although it is located 3360 km from South America. How, you ask? Hell knows. For example, Wi-Fi in the toilet is no longer pulling for me, but here things are like that.

Down with doubts, let's move on to drawing.

How to draw an island with a pencil step by step

Step one. Let's start with the horizon line. With a straight thick line, we divide the sheet almost in half horizontally. The scribbles on top are clouds, I guess, and the pie in the middle is an island. Step two. Okay, I agree, the clouds did not turn out very well. We remove them and draw wavy clouds more carefully. We remove the top of the island, instead of it - thick grass on the ground. Slightly twitch the pencil. Step three. From the diet, we will only have coconuts. We plant the entire island with palm trees, where they fit in, so that there is not even a place left to sit down. We will live on a palm tree. Fourth step. Add more grass under the trees. There is an island, but it's not in the air, is it? We hatch the lower part so that the void becomes like water.
