How To Draw A Robins Nest Picture, Free Worksheet

The free drawing worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting it and sending it to your printer or saving to your device for printing later. This worksheet can be given as a classroom assignment or sent as a take home project.

BEGINNINGS
Start with a lose sketch where you use basic shapes to work out the design. The nest is shaped like a bowl with rounded edges, so draw an oval with another oval inside and almost touching the top edge. The robin is shaped like a teardrop upside down with a circle for the head at the top. The tail is like a long triangle.

DEVELOP FORM
Since robins lay up to four eggs draw one or two ovals for the eggs.
The hatched chick is a circle for a body with triangles on the sides for the wings.
The chick head is turned up and all you see is the beak that is shaped like a triangle.
Draw leaves that are heart shaped or almond shaped below the nest and behind the nest.
Add a tree trunk, it is drawn as parallel lines wide apart below the nest and narrow together above the nest.

DETAILS
The nest is textured with long lines going around it. Make the lines thicker and darker for the shadow underneath and inside bottom of the nest. These lines should follow the curve of the nest.
The robin has two long feathers on the wing. The wing on the far side sticks out a little at the back.
The tail has two long feathers.
Give the tree trunk texture of bark by using short choppy lines.

SHADING
Things that are behind other things could be shaded darker to make the foreground stand out.
The robin's head is black, the wing and tail is grey and the chest is orange red.
The egg is blue.
The chick is brown and grey.

How to Draw Pansies Flowers in a Pot. Free Worksheet.

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting it and sending to your printer or saving to your device for printing later.

INTRODUCTION
There are many types of pansies I have tried to create a project that can be adjusted to whichever type you want to sketch.

BEGINNING
Start with three large circles, you can do more or less as you want. Just get them in place in the center of your picture, have them overlap a little to be interesting. In the middle draw three tiny circles close together.

DEVELOPMENT
The flower has five petals. Start with the bottom one, it is shaped like a bushy beard on an old man, or a triangle that is roundish. Next draw the ones on each side they are like elephant ears. Last draw the two on the top, the top left is first and the top right is last it is behind everything.

LEAVES
The leaves are like triangles with bumpy sides. Start with a line down the middle and then draw the sides. Draw them behind the flowers.

DETAILS
The flower petals have jagged edges. There are veins or wrinkles that go through the petals. They have a dark spot on the lower three petals, use shading technique to show this. Do not worry about making it perfect it is the randomness that makes the flower interesting.

The pot is just two lines going down to a level point and a curving line that connects them. Shadow around the sides and below the flowers.

How To Draw A Face Of A Viking, Free Worksheet.

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting it and sending to your printer or saving to your device for printing later. Parents and teachers will be able to use this in classroom and at home.

OVERVIEW
This Viking face is a man's face with a short beard. He is wearing a helmet that has a slight point and nose piece.

Every head has a different shape but this one is hidden by the helmet and the beard so it is almost impossible to make mistakes.

BEGINNINGS
Draw a large oval for the head. Use guidelines to keep things even. Place a guideline straight up and down for the center. Draw a guideline halfway down across the face for the eyes. Place a guideline halfway between the eyes and the chin for the nose and one halfway from there to the chin for the mouth.

ADDING FEATURES
The eyes are on the guideline half way down. The tops are like arches drawn with straight lines; first up, then over, then across. The lower eyelid is almost straight across but just a little curved. Draw a shadow below. Draw a shiny spot before you do the iris or the pupil.

The nose is partially hidden by the helmet nose piece. Draw two lines like the parenthesis for the outer nostril shape and a line like a slight "V" between them.

The upper lip is hidden by the mustache, the lower lip is more of a shadow below going across.

HAIR AND BEARD
The hair is stringy. Do not try to draw every line, just get the shape. Not all Vikings had long hair, so this one has his hair- just collar length. The hair does not just go down but poofs out a little from under the helmet. Draw the bottom edge of the hair and the beard with a lot of short choppy lines. Then have a few long lines going all the way.

HELMET
Save the helmet for last. The helmet is not rounded but has a slight point. It is wider than the head. Draw an arch over the head but give it the slight point. There are metal straps going around it and over the top, draw them as double lines. Draw the nose piece with a rectangle. Add circles for the nails.

FINISHING TOUCHES
Give him some scars. Use shading to give the face a rounded look.

How To Draw The Face Of A Geisha, Free How To Draw Worksheet

The free worksheet at the bottom of this page and the lesson notes below may be printed by highlighting it and forwarding to your printer or saving to your device for printing later.

NOTE: There is much confusion about the Geisha as who they are and what they do. The geisha is an artist who performs song, dance, music and other art forms. They were to be living expressions of art and beauty.

BEGINNINGS
Remember to draw lightly so you can erase later.
The head is an oval shape. The pose is the three quarter view, (where she is turning slightly away) so draw a guideline slightly to the left to help keep things straight. Use guidelines halfway down, and  going across the face to place the eyes. Halfway below that draw another one for the nose and half way to the chin draw another for the mouth. The hair starts out as a three large ovals.

FACE
Keep things simple. Draw two arches for the upper eyelid and a slightly curved line for the lower eyelid. The nose is a line going down and curving a little inward at the bottom. The mouth is small. The eyebrows are a thin line.

HAIR
Outline the flowers and any other ornaments you want to put in the hair before drawing in the hair. There are two chopsticks poking out, there are three strings of paper bells hanging down, and a charm that looks like a comb on the right side. The hair starts high up on the forehead. Remember to leave areas to be highlights- it is good to outline them early on. Use long curving lines starting at the forehead and going up or out. There is a bun at the top and a bun at the side. The highlights will help it to look real.

DRESS
The dress wraps around the shoulders. Draw two or four lines going down from the shoulders like cloth wrapping across.
