hat drawing

©Copyright 2000 Teaching Treasures Publications Materials needed:
  • A3 paper
  • willow charcoal
  • kneadable rubber
  • pencils 2B(light) 4B(dark) 6B(darker) and 8B(darkest)
  • hat and a shoe
  • log with bark
  • spotlight
What to do:
  • Hang the hat on the back of a kitchen chair.
  • Hang the spotlight above your hat to get effective lighting.
  • Use faint lines first and sketch the hat with pencil.
  • Do not sketch the entire chair, only a small part where the hat hangs on.
  • Try to draw the curves of the hat by using shadow and light.
  • Finish your drawing using your charcoal effectively.
  • Try sketching a shoe which is sitting next to a log.
  • You can look at the shoe from any angle you like. The example below is the back view of a shoe.
  • Again....use your charcoal effectively and get those shadows and lighter bits in.
  • Try to get that 'bark' texture look .... back
