How to Draw A Sailboat Printable Worksheet

How to draw a sailboat is a printable drawing worksheet that is simple and is great for when the student says they do not know what to draw.  It uses a few shapes and lines to form the sailboat and then the bottom example has a scene that includes the texture of the water and distant land to give the project interest and to introduce a little challenge to the young artist. Sailboats come in all shapes, so if your's doesn't look just right do not get upset because there is one just like it somewhere.

Printable Project Notes.
BEGINNINGS
Draw the line where the water touches the bottom of the boat first, make it horizontal and straight across so it doesn't look like the boat is going uphill. The second line should be the mast it will be a little ahead of the 1/2 way point  Use simple shapes to form a basic outline of the boat. The sails are like triangles. The boat is like a rectangle with a triangle at the front.

DEVELOPING FORM
The mast is two lines. There is a cabin, it is another rectangle, on top of the first. There are windows on the side of the cabin. The front sail curves, so go over the lines to give it a curve. The front of the boat has a curve. The water at the front of the boat has a splash.

FINISHING TOUCHES
Draw a little man sitting in the back but keep him simple.
Add waves to the water. The waves are thicker and darker in the lower foreground and fewer thinner and lighter in the distance. Add an island or two and the setting sun.
