How To Draw A Young Peasant Woman, Shepherdess, Free Worksheet

This free How to draw a young peasant woman worksheet will help the young artist in drawing a woman in peasant clothing. It helps with the basic figure and gives a few ideas about posing and clothing.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Drawing takes practice and time so if your drawings do not turn out the way you want them to at first do not give up just keep at it.  Draw every day, you can try some of my other projects, and soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

To print the worksheet and the project notes just highlight and send to your printer or copy and save to a word doc then print the doc, (sometimes the margins get off but you can reset them from your toolbar). You can copy and save to your device to print later. If you have problems printing see the how to print tab above for some tips.

Start with an articulated stick figure, one that has joints for the knees and elbows, to get the pose right.

Around the stick figure fill out the body by outlining the arms and legs. save the clothing for last.

Keep the face simple.  She is looking over her shoulder so the chin almost touches the shoulder and the face is in three-quarter view. Use guidelines for the eyes nose and mouth,
     * The eyes are halfway between the top of the head and the chin,
     * The nose is halfway between the eyes and the chin.
     * The mouth is halfway between the nose and the chin.
A little of the cheek on the far side of the nose will show.

The clothing should wrap around the body and show some of the lines of the body; this gives her a sense of movement. The skirt goes all the way to the ground and hides her feet. There is a second skirt or apron around the waist.  If you want to draw feet then do not give her shoes.  Her blouse will be white but she has a black vest over it.  A shawl or wrap will go over the shoulders or around the back. Give the skirt lots of folds or pleats.

Do the hair last with a lot of waves and curls; draw a hat or cloth over her head it could be a rectangle or triangle. The hand is like a square,  Give her a basket or shepherd's staff to hold that way the picture starts to tell a story.
