  • 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.

Start by drawing lightly at first so you can erase later.

Draw a line for the back edge of the table that way it will not look like stuff floating on the page.

Use a guideline up and down for the center of each bottle then you can use it to keep the lines even on both sides.

Use basic shapes to form the composition. Circles for the curves of the bottles. Ovals for the bottoms and the wine glass. Use a ruler for the straight lines.

It makes the picture look more interesting if some things are in front and other things are half hidden behind. Make it look like a landscape with a background, a middle ground and a foreground. Group things in a cluster not in a row.

Use an eraser to clean up the extra guidelines.

Add details like shiny spots where the light is reflecting on the glass. Add wrinkles in the tablecloth. Add labels and corks.

My picture was done as a line drawing in marker but if you are using pencils or color media you can easily adapt this drawing to your media of choice.
