How To Draw Summer
Drawing summer can be one of the most rewarding experiences for artists of all levels. There are a few tips and tricks you can use to capture the summer weather and landscape with ease. From basic sketching techniques to bringing out the hues of the sky and adding texture to the elements of summer, it’s possible to paint and draw a convincing summer scene.
First, you can start by deciding on the kind of drawing you want to create. Whether it’s a landscape, or night scene, or portrait, sketching out a rough outline can help give your piece shape and structure. With any drawing, it’s best to start light and in pencil. When deciding on your composition, you can use your sketch as a guide. Reference photos of the season or look out a window to get inspired.
Once you’ve decided on your composition, you can start to shade in the details. Using more pressure in your pencil strokes, take your time and enjoy the process. You can even add in small ridges for extra texture. From darkened tree branches to the subtle curves of summertime grass, shading in the details will bring to life the picture in your mind.
Adding color can be one of the most exciting parts of creating any drawing. When drawing summer, it’s important to note all the different shades of blue. From light blues of the sky, to the teals of the sea, the richness of summertime skies can stand out and make your painting stand out even more. To bring out the texture of the illustration, use tones like ochre and olive green to add more flair.
If you want to make your summer drawing as realistic as possible, there are some times to remember. To make your sky look more interesting, try adding in some cirrus clouds. The light, feathery structure of the clouds help provide depth and dimension to the sky. When painting or drawing waves, the radial shape helps embodies the fluidity of the water. And don’t forget to capture the vividness of the sun!
When creating a summer drawing, you can start by defining your piece through sketching. Take your time and shade in the details and bring life to the hues of summer. From shady trees to bright blue skies, adding color can make your piece come alive with the summer mood. And when capturing the vibrancy of summer don’t forget to add in the small details such as clouds and waves to give your piece a polished look.
Even though summer is already half way gone, there’s still time to capture the beauty of the season through art. With these tips, you can enjoy the process of creating a vivid summer drawing in no time.
Good luck, and have fun!
