Drawing mist is a tricky yet beautiful art form. It’s all about creating those velvety, ethereal clouds in a way to both lift the heart and enchant the eye. But how can you make mist come alive on paper? Here I’m sharing my secrets for drawing mist, so you can bring the magic of mist to life.

The first step is to get the paper ready. Use a heavier weight of paper and make sure it’s nice and smooth. This is important, as the paper will form the base for your mist.

You can make abstract shapes or wispy lines, depending on the effect you want. Just remember to not go too heavy on the pressure, or your pencil lines will be too dominant. Then you can start adding darker pencil strokes to create the depths and depths of your mist. Keep layering, and make sure you leave some white space in between the shadows to create the right atmosphere.

Next, time to add a little more colour and shine. Using a white gel pen or marker, add some specks of light and luminous twinkles. If you have a metallic pencil, you can also lightly go over the edges of your mist and highlight the clouds. Keep layering and adding more details, until you feel the mist is complete.

The final step is to add a little bit of ink, to give life and movement to your mist. Use an amount of waterproof ink to add light, flowing lines. This way, you can create a sense of dynamic motion that will make your mist come alive.
