Free How to Draw the Apple Harvest Bushel Picture Worksheet.

Here is a free how to draw the Apple Harvest Bushel Picture. 


This picture was inspired by some tables at a roadside fruit stand that had different varieties of apples in big bushels on some boxes. 

This how-to-draw worksheet took three days to design and create. I hope you have fun with it.

YOU MAY COPY THESE LESSON NOTES. 


Draw lightly at first so that you can erase and clean it up later. 
Start by gathering your reference materials like favorite pictures of tulips from cards, magazines, or calendars. I used some photos that I took at a fruit stand beside the road in Pennsylvania USA. 
Use the pictures for ideas and design. 

The bushel is in front of a box. The Box is drawn with parallel lines that form a Parrallegram on the top and sides. But do not worry if it is not perfect it is supposed to look old and worn. 

The bushel is two horizontal ovals and vertical lines that connect the top and bottom ovals. Use a guideline to keep both sides level or else one side will be higher than the other. 

Draw an apple on top of the box, just make it a circle at first. You will come back and finish it later. 

Draw two or three bushes in front and one on the side, it gives the picture interest.  

Use circles to compose the apples, remember to draw them lightly at first. place them randomly and not too orderly.  Do not make them look like a pyramid or too tall, just a few on top of others. Start them as circles. Have some in from of others. Once they are in the right places erase the bottom of the circles if you need to.  

Add details to build up the realism. Draw lines that show the thickness of the edge of the box. Draw a second line around the edge of the bushel to show its thickness  Draw vertical lines for the parts of the bushels. Draw two lines for the top edges of the bushels, and for the band that wraps it.  

Draw verticle lines to indicate the wall behind, draw horizontal lines to give the look of the wood floor. 

Erase the extra lines. 

Determine which side the light is coming in from. Add shadows on the opposite side of the light. So if the light is from the right the shadow will be on the left.  Put shadows inside the box and behind the bushels. Take your time with the shadows since they give it depth and roundness. 

Use choppy lines to give the wood wall and floor texture and character. 

I hope your drawing is a masterpiece!

Free How to Draw a Tulip Garden Art Lesson and Printable Worksheet.

Free how to draw a tulip garden worksheet


Here is a fun and easy drawing lesson that will help the beginner in drawing tulip flowers.  It is not a hard project and is good practice. I tried to make the lesson interesting and took a few risks with the composition. The flowers are not in a neet tidy row and they are intentionally a little ragged as if they were past their bloom; after all, that is real life, and a picture should tell a story. 

If you have problems getting the image below to print click on the HOW TO PRINT tab for some suggestions.

LESSON NOTES


BEGINING
Start by gathering your reference materials like favorite pictures of tulips from cards, magazines, or calendars. Use the pictures for ideas and design. 

In my illustration I have some tulips taller than others, some are in front and some are behind. It all makes it look interesting. You may want to do some rough sketches first to get your ideas right.

Lightly sketch your design. Keep it loose, rough, and quick.  Just some circles for the flowers and lines for the stems and leaves. Keep it light so you can erase parts later.

DEVELOPING FROM
After you have the basic design the way you like it then go over the best lines and erase the ones you do not want.

FLOWERS
The tulip flower looks like a bowl or cup. In our illustration, we are looking down into the flower at an angle. Draw a curved guide-line across the circle that you drew for the flower. The guideline is the edge fo the nearer leaves of the flower's cup shape. 
Divide the cup shape into petals by drawing two or three lines down from the guideline and from the back edge of the circle.   
The edges of the flower is a little jagged so draw sawtooth-like lines on the edge of the guide-line and the top circle line. 
Erase the extra lines.  

SHADING
Shading may be the most important part of the picture. Shadow is determined by the direction of the light source. If the light is coming from the left the shadow will be on the right. I suggest that you do all the shadow at once at the end. Work the shading over the whole picture not one area at a time, because if you start at one spot and work out it may not look even. There are shadows in shadows and some shadows near the edge are lighter and some shadows farther from the light may be darker. 
Use shade to separate flowers into those in front and those behind. 

Be sure to sign and date your work about an inch or so from the bottom so there is room for a frame.

YOU MAY PRINT THE ART LESSON NOTES BELOW.


BEGINNING
Start out by drawing lightly at first so you can erase later.
Keep it simple at the beginning.
Use a basic stick figure to work out the pose.
Use a guideline across the shoulders to keep them level. Use a guideline across the waist to keep the elbows on the level. 

DEVELOPING
After you have the pose the way you want it then draw around the stick figure to give the body its shape and then draw the clothes over that.

The head is an oval. Do not draw the hat until you get the features in the right place. Use three guidelines to help place the eyes, nose, and mouth. The first guideline is halfway across. The second is halfway down from the first, the third is halfway down from the second.  

Draw the hat through the top of the head not above it. 

DETAILS
Keep the hands simple. Draw around the stick figure fingers. They are gloves so they can be fat and shapeless mittens.

FACE
Go over the oval shape of the face to give sharpness to the jaw and cheeks. Keep the face simple, the nose is like a letter "V" the mouth is a few lines. The eyes are two arches with dark half-circles for the pupil. Make the hat uneven like it is old and beaten up, this will give the drawing character. 

Erase the extra lines and rework the lines you like. It may be a good idea to trace the design onto another paper to finish the project. Many artist do this, sometimes two or more times on a project. 

FINISH
Color or shade the line drawing after you finish. When you color or shade in the picture look for areas that you can leave white for contrast. Be careful to have some very dark areas and some very light areas and some medium-dark areas.

Keep the face simple, the nose and eyebrow form a letter "S" Use a short line for the upper lip and a shorter line for the lower lip. The eyes are two slightly curving lines since the wounded man is not awake and the hero is watching his step.

Color or shade the line drawing after you finish.

Do not forget to put in the background like a battle scene or a dead monster. Draw the ground around the hero's feet so he doesn't look like he is floating.

BEGINNING
Start out by drawing lightly at first so you can erase later.
Use basic shapes to work out the design. The largest shape will be a teardrop shape, but it is sideways. Draw long ovals for the front flipper and ovals for the head and rear feet.  It does not need to be perfect.

DEVELOPING
The front flipper has a curve like a knee going front that makes it look like a backward number "7." The flipper is not straight but has curves going back and forth on the front edge and on the back edge.

Draw the top of the shell in the shape of a long narrow oval with a point at the back.

The top shell, head, and flipper have a pattern of scales. Lightly draw a grid of lines that make box shapes on the flipper and on the shell, but don't make it perfect, let some be different sizes and irregular shapes.  draw around the inside of the shapes of the grid so it looks like boxes inside a net. Erase the grid leaving spaces between the boxes, (remember I said to draw it lightly so you can erase). The bottom of the shell has simple lines like for the scales and is plainer than the top.
Erase all the extra lines and go over the lines you want to keep.

SHADING
Put shadows underneath the turtle. Use shading to make the far flipper look darker, use shading under the neck and chin. The top of the shell is much darker than the bottom but be careful that you do not lose the pattern.

Draw wavey lines for the water effect.

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.

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.

Printable How To Draw a Picture of a Ship Coming to You Art Lesson Worksheet.

This is a free how to draw worksheet of a ship coming toward you.

It was inspired by a drawing I did as one of the illustrations I drew for a book. It was one thing to draw the picture but very different to go back and describe how I drew it.

YOU MAY PRINT THE ART PROJECT NOTES BELOW.


BEGINNING
First, draw a straight line across for the horizon, DO NOT DRAW IT HALFWAY 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 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!
