BEGINNING
Start out by drawing lightly at first so you can erase later.
Use the basic shape of a triangle to start, it does not need to be perfect. Add an arch like a rainbow over the large triangle. Make the arch lopsided so it is higher at the top of the triangle than at the bottom. Draw a small triangle centered on the back end of the large triangle.

DEVELOPING
Draw several curves going inward on the arch for the wrinkled edges. Draw three or four guidelines on the small triangle to help keep the spurs even and in line. Across the guidelines draw bumps for the spurs of the shell. Draw the two larger spurs on the bottom like lopsided letter "V" pointing down and back. The bottom edge curves upward a little and is wavey.

CLEAN UP THE PICTURE
Erase all the extra lines and go over the lines you want to keep.

SHADING
Put a shadow underneath the conch shell. Put shadows on the edges to give the shell roundness. Use shadow to define the wrinkles.
Use shading to show the long folds in the sides.

YOU MAY PRINT THE ART PROJECT NOTES BELOW.

BEGINNING
First, determine the horizon, in this case, it is the hills in the background, the horizon should be high on the picture, but leave room for the clouds.
Draw lightly at first so you can erase later.
Use simple lines sketch a few hills the far river banks and the curved road, keep in mind you are creating a background, middle ground and foreground.
Use basic shapes to design the covered bridge. Use a rectangle for the side, and front a triangle for the front top a parallelogram for the roof. You are only doing the design at this point you will do details later. It is ok to use a ruler or straight edge to draw the bridge, all good craftsmen know when to use tools. The straight lines of the bridge will give an interesting contrast to the picture
Do not put the covered bridge in the center that is boring put it between the center and the edge of the picture that makes it interesting.

DEVELOPING
The clouds are the big summer ones that go up high from the horizon. Start by lightly drawing the fluffy humps of the cloud then draw the bottoms going across. Draw one cloud behind the other make them huge.

Add detail to the bridge by drawing the post that holds up the roof use three verticle lines. Next draw lines from the top of one to the bottom of the next. Draw around the lines to make them thicker like huge beams. Draw one verticle line and two slanted lines for what is showing through the entrance of the bridge.

Use a lot of long lines back and forth for the water.
Very gently add shadow to the clouds.

This next part takes a lot of time to do well so do not rush it. Add texture to the trees and bushes by drawing lots of tiny rounded "M" and "N" shapes. Add texture to the bridge by drawing lines for the wood. Use dashes across and more at an angle for the shingles for the roof.
Add rocks to the water and the road.
Give the river bank texture by drawing choppy lines that down at an angle.
Use shadow inside the bridge and under it.

Use erasers to clean up your picture.

YOU MAY PRINT THE ART PROJECT NOTES BELOW.

BEGINNING
First, draw a straight line across for the horizon, DO NOT DRAW IT HALF WAY DOWN- that is just too boring.

Draw lightly at first so you can erase later.

The hull or body of the ship is like a letter "U." Draw it over the line for the horizon so the horizon line goes through it, you can erase later.

The ship is coming toward you, so you see the point of the front. Draw it like a triangle with a point going up and a little to the side.

Draw a line in a curve for the very front of the ship. It is a little to one side but curves away to the other, this line helps give a feeling of the direction the ship is going.

The cabin is like a rectangle. Draw it lightly at first so you can erase the part that is not showing. The cabin is slightly at a side so draw a line to show the corner of the front and the side.

There is a mast that goes out from the front. Draw it as a straight line but it is a line that is a part of the top edge of the side of the ship.

SAILS
The big sails are on two masts, draw them lightly at first because the sail is in front of them and you will only see the tops, but draw them so you can get everything straight erase them later. There is a cross beam across the top so it all looks like a letter "t."

Before you do the beautiful shapes of the sails, use squares to get them where you want them to be. This drawing has two square sails, one in front of the other. Use squares to work out the design. The sail in the back is lower, so the bottom and side are all that shows.
There are two triangle sails on the very front.

The pendants on top of the mast are two lines shaped like a long skinny letter "Z," that connect at a point. The two lines are connected by a backward letter "C" where they touch the top of the mast.

SPLASH AND CLOUDS
Use circles to design how you want the splash at the front to look. Just work out your ideas then later make it look like a splash with shading and bubbles.

Use circles to design how you want the clouds to look. The far clouds over the horizon are smaller than the ones up top, (overhead).

Go over the all the sails with lines that curve to show that the wind is pushing them out. Erase any part of the mast that is behind and unseen.

SHADING
The sun is behind, so the front of the ship is in shadow. Shade the front of the ship and the cabin. Use shading on the bottom of the splash and keep the top clean. Use little circles for bubbles if you like.. Do not shade all the sides leave the outside edges light for contrast.

Clean up the clouds and keep them simple, just use the best lines from the circles you drew before and erase the rest.

THE SEA
The sea is darker in the foreground, use long thick lines going back and forth to give it movement and darkness. The sea is lighter far away, use short thin lines with a lot of white areas between them to give the feeling of distance.

Oops! I forgot the seagulls, but you can take care of that!

PRINTABLE ART LESSON  NOTES.

BEGINNINGS
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.
Draw a line straight across the bottom for where the ground, this helps keep the legs right. The tank can be a rectangle or square. Just lightly sketch the basic shape in to get started. Use a guideline down the middle to keep thing even, draw it lightly so you can erase later. Use some lines from the tank to the ground to keep things straight, draw them lightly so you can erase later. Use some lines to make the mountains in the background, draw them lightly you will want to come back to the background later.

DEVELOPING THE FORM
The barrel of the tank is a cylinder viewed from below. Using the cross lines of the square draw a curved line across the top. If the curved line is slight the tower looks lower to the ground if the curved line is very deep it looks like you are nearer to it.
The top curve has the same degree as the bottom curve line. You will have two up curves and one down curve for the far bottom or back edge.
The legs of the tower are slightly outward tilted for support and have cross supports just draw lines to get the arrangements right. Put one line off center for interest and to give room for the center pipe.

Draw two lines for the ladder, remember they have a slight bend where the tank ends and the outward bending legs begin. Mark off where the cross steps will be so you can keep them even. Use parallel lines to give the ladder substance.

The top of the tank has a roof, draw it like a triangle.

Go around the lines of the legs and the cross supports with additional lines to give them thickness. Then erase the original lines. Use a third line to keep the planks and beams from looking two dimensional.

Use marks to plan where the planks are spaced on the round sides of the tank. The planks are wider in the center and closer together as they near the edges, this is perspective. Draw the planks as lines going from the top to the bottom.

Add a figure like a cow or horse or farm worker to give the viewer a sense of size.

The background will give the picture a sense of place. Draw bushes trees hills and mountains. Add grasses and rocks in the foreground. Add a shadow under the tank.
