How To Draw An Airplane Worksheet, WWII Spitfire

This free printable drawing worksheet will help the young artist practice drawing something with a unique shape that is not composed of a lot of recognizable shapes such as triangles, circles and squares.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
Learning to draw takes practice so do not give up if your project does not turn out the way you had hoped it would. Your frustration is a good sign and shows that you have talent and know how you want your picture to look like. You only need to get your skill up to the level of your talent. So draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to my blog often and try some of my other projects.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE WORKSHEET
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

These how to draw worksheets are free to print but your small gift will help me keep this blog going.

This airplane shape has very few straight lines. The wings are curved slightly, the rudder and stabilizers are curved or oval.

The fuselage has a straight line from the cockpit to the rudder and the rudder has a straight line on the leading edge. The front of the fuselage has a cone for the propeller. There is a row of exhaust pipes between the propeller and the cockpit. The bottom line of the fuselage curves toward the wing.

Trace coins or buttons to make the wheels round.

Our drawing has the cockpit open there is a door that folds down with a step on it for the pilot to get in.

Draw a shadow underneath.

Put your airplane in an environment like a landing field with the tents for the pilots in the back ground and the trees of the farms beyond that.

What makes this project beautiful is the graceful curving lines of the aircraft. Take your time and it will look good.
