How to Draw A Boat Step by Step – EasyLineDrawing
Start with a pencil and make light lines that you can easily erase if you make a mistake. This tutorial shows how to draw a sail boat in nine steps with illustrated examples and easy-to-follow instructions. The sail boat used in this example is fairly modern and also fairly simple with only two sails.
Step 1 – Draw the Boat Hull
You only need three slightly curved lines to outline the hall; leave the bottom out because it will be submerged in water, and make sure to leave enough room at the top of your drawing area for the mast/sails.
Step 2 – Draw the Surrounding Water
Draw a wavy line along the bottom of a boat’s hull to represent water ripples, then add a horizon line on each end of the boat, slightly above that, to represent the horizon, which can be straight or wavy like the water around the hull.
Step 3 – Draw the Cabin
Draw it with a flat top and a slightly steeper front end than the back, and then add the cabin by sticking out from the middle of the hull.
Step 4 – Draw the Mast
Make it a straight pole with another part attached near the bottom and pointing backwards, with the mast sticking out from the cabin and the boom pointing backwards as well as towards the center of the boat.
Step 5 – Draw the Sails
Add a flag at the top of the mast pointing forward with a slight fold to show that it’s blowing in the wind. Draw the sails with the front one curved slightly forward but leaving a little room between it and the mast. Draw the back sail attacked directly to the mast and the boom.
Step 6 – Draw the Ropes
Draw the ropes that connect the front sail to the mast and the bow (front tip of the ship), then another rope that connects the boom to the hull.
Step 7 – Draw the Windows
Draw some windows on the cabin, as shown in the example, with the front and back ones looking a bit like they’ve been “cut off” to match the angle of the front and back of the cabin.
Step 8 – Finish the Line Drawing
Add more water ripples below the big wavy line at the bottom of the hull, making the waves larger near the bottom of the drawing and smaller near the boat to give the picture some depth. Once you’ve finished drawing the water, go over your lines with a black pen or marker, or simply darken the lines with a peacock feather.
Step 9 – Color the Boat
Finally, color the boat and the water/sky. It’s best to use water-based paints or colored pencils for this because markers can be a little too bright. Color the boat as follows: Brown hull Yellow cabin Blue windows Light yellow sails Green/blue water Light blue sky
