This tutorial will teach you how to draw a lovely lightouse and ocean scene. We’ll provide you with step-by-step instructions and helpful tips for getting great results.
Have you ever been to a lighthouse? A tall structure builds next to sea waves and currents. This tutorial involves making a painting of a sea scenery with ships and a lighthouse in the background. The basic nature of the art makes it great for young kids and beginners. So, gather all the stuff needed for the painting and let’s start making it.
Lighthouse And Sea Scenery Drawing For Kids
- A white sheet of chart paper
- A pencil
- A black sketch pen
- Colour pencils
Step 1: Drawing The Lighthouse
Take a rectangular sheet of white chart paper and place it on the table, vertically.
Firstly, draw a line in the middle of the sheet using a scale and a black sketch pen. Now, draw a lighthouse on the left end of this line. Use two vertical lines as the building with a small structure containing the light on top of it. Finally, draw three lines on each side of the light depicting the beams emitted by it. Check the picture below to understand the drawing.
Step 2: Drawing The Sky Scenery
Take a pencil and draw a circle on the right side of the sheet. Now, draw some lines around this circle depicting the rays emitted by the sun. Don’t forget to make a smiling face on this happy, shining sun. Draw some birds on the left side of this sun and cloud linings above the line drawn in the middle of the sheet. These cloud linings should be drawn across the sheet in order to separate the sky from the sea and give both parts some definition. Finally, outline the pencil drawings with a black sketch pen. Have a keen look at the picture below as use it as a reference.
Step 3: Drawing The Boats
Draw six small boats across the blank space on the bottom half section of the sheet. The boat should just consist of a stern and a sail in the middle. Draw another boat on the surface of the water, i.e., on the right side of the line drawn in the middle of the sheet. Outline the boats with a black sketch pen. Finally, draw three horizontal lines between the two vertical lines drawn as the lighthouse earlier. See the picture below for reference. This completes the process of making the base drawing of the scenery.
Colouring The Drawing
Take a blue colour pencil and colour the sea with it. Draw some curved lines throughout the sea using light and dark blue colour pencils. These lines will act as waves in the sea. Colour the stern of the boat brown and the sails in different colours of your own choice.
Colour the sky with a light blue colour pencil and the sun with a yellow one. Don’t forget to add some blush to its cheeks. Outline the cloud linings with a darker shade of blue than the sky and the rays of the sun with a brown colour pencil. Finally, moving on to the lighthouse, colour the first and the third horizontal section of the building red and the light at the top, yellow. Outline the beams using a brown colour pencil. Observe the picture below for reference.
