Start Drawing: PART 9 – Draw a Simple Boat

More videos

You can draw a simple boat by using a number ‘8’, amazing! I’ll show you how to do it in this simple drawing tutorial. Once you have identified the number ‘8’ and sketched the edges of the boat, the basic shape is achieved. Drawing the planks follows the curve of the number ‘8’. You’ll find the number’8′ will give your drawing the subtle curves that are unique to a small boat. I’ll take you through drawing the planks of the boat and how to add shading, as a result your boat look three dimensional. Reflections can be difficult to understand because they are constantly moving. Drawing the reflection of the boat in the water can be easy. Just follow my simple instructions and as a result your reflection will look very realistic.

Beginners and those who want to improve their drawing skills will find this tutorial a great help. Above all, this art tutorial should be a great help to children in schools and those wanting to learn to draw a simple boat.
