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.

PRINTABLE NOTES.

BEGINNINGS
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later. Begin by drawing a stick figure just to get the pose and size right. The head is tilted back since she is looking up at the flower umbrella. Make the head like an oval for now.
Use three guidelines to help draw the face. One for the eyes halfway across the head. The nose is halfway from the eyes to the chin, The mouth is halfway from the nose to the chin.
Draw a horizontal line to show where the leaf is floating on the water.

OUTLINE THE WINGS.
Outline the wings. The wings have two shapes. The top wing is like a triangle with a bent edge. The bottom wing is like a long letter "U."

DEVELOPING THE FIGURE
Draw around the stick figure to make the body shape. The legs and arms are thin. The knees are a few straight lines. The hand is at an angle and almost square.

CLOTHING
The clothing could be made out of silk so it has flowing lines. Draw the clothing around the figure, then erase the stick figure lines. The sleeve hangs down and curves back. The legs are covered by a skirt, the lines follow the legs on the left side and drape backward on the right side since it is floating in the water.

FACE
Keep the face simple. The forehead dips in at the eyes. The nose is like a triangle. The top lip is like a backward-facing letter "J" laying down. The bottom lip is like the letter "C". Draw the hair with long sweeping lines going over the wings.

DETAIL THE WINGS
Use ovals and circles to add detail to the wings. The circles can go around the edge. Draw the back edge of the wings with a back and forth pattern. Remember to leave the hair.

THE LEAF
The leaf is a straight line at the bottom where it floats in the water and the sides are just some curved lines that meet at points pointing up. The back of the leaf has the stem going up like the back of a chair for her to rest against.

Use curved lines for the ripples in the water.
Add shading.

YOU MAY PRINT THE PROJECT NOTES BELOW.

BEGINNING
Use a few lines draw a very simple landscape. Here we are drawing meadows and a hill for the village. The hills in the distance are closer together and the hills in the foreground are farther apart.
Be sure to have one big hill for the village.
Make the road that leads to the village with a few zigzags or curves- a straight road is boring.

Old villages had a stone wall around them like a fort for protection. Use a few lines to draw the village wall like a rectangle coming up from the lower hills. Add towers to the village walls.

HOUSES
Some houses are outside the wall but be careful to make sure they are smaller than the wall and be sure to leave the wall showing above those houses.

Use straight lines to make squares and rectangles and parallelograms to create houses. Draw the houses from the corner and not the full side view it is more interesting.

The houses closest to you are the lowest ones. Start with the lowest houses first like an uneven row. Then draw the next row above so they are behind the second row. The higher up the hill the less of the side of the houses you see and more of the roofs are visible. Keep adding more rows until you cover the hill. Have some houses facing one way and some facing another.

Develop the landscape with trees and bushes on the ridges of the hills. Use bushes or stone walls or fences beside the road that leads to the village. The bushes in the foreground will be darker and with more detail. The bushes in the distance will be lighter and drawn simply.

Add towers to the village walls.

When you think you have put in all the houses you can then look at it again and see if you can put in some more. This is the hard work and takes patience but it will look good if you do.

Use dots and dashes to make rows for the crops in the fields. Make the rows go in different directions from one field to the next.
