How To Draw A Pilgrim Man's Face. Worksheet

This free printable drawing worksheet is an easy and basic how to sketch a face lesson. This lesson and worksheet can be adapted to many historical persons.

The Pilgrim is often illustrated with the broad brimmed hat that has a buckle on it and the black clothes with the white collar. In fact black clothes were very expensive: so they were only worn on the most special occasions and by the wealthy. The daily clothes were the common homespun and hand dyed in a number of colors.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:  If your drawings do not turn out the way you were hopping do not give up, learning to draw takes practice. Draw everyday and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to this blog often and try some of my other projects.

Start with an oval head shape. Use a guide-line up and down in the center to keep things even. Draw lightly at first so you can erase later.

Outline the hat making sure the brim is almost as low as the eyebrows. Just outline it now and finish the hat and clothing last.

Draw the face with straight lines wherever you can, this will give him the rugged manly look.

They eyes are half way down from the top. Mark off the shiny spots early so they don't get drawn over and lost. The eyebrows are bushy and wider than the eyes. The edge of the hat almost touches the eyebrows.

The tip of the nose is halfway from the eyes to the chin. Keep this nose simple. Only shadow one side, and underneath. The nose dips down and is a little wider than normal. There should be a slight shadow at the top of the nose under the eyebrow.

The mouth is halfway form the nose tot the chin. The upper lip is just a shadow shape. The lower lip looks like a very spread out letter "W" and is shadowed heavy.

The ears are almost even with the nose and the tops are hidden by the long hair.

The neck is almost as wide as the head, and the shoulders taper down slightly.

Don't get too frustrated over the collar and the clothes, there were different clothes in historical paintings showing a variety of collars, coats, capes and shirts.
