How to Draw a Waterfall for Kids
- Let’s start with splashing water.
Draw an elongated oval with a wavy outline that resembles a cloud.
- Draw falling water.
Draw two vertical lines upward. They go from the “cloud” with a slight slope to the right. At the top, close the shape with a straight line.
Draw some strokes on the water.
- Draw part of the mountain.
In the next step, draw a semi-oval on the left. It adjoins one side of the waterfall.
- Draw the second side of the mountain.
Draw the same semi-oval on the right. Please note that in the upper part, the hilly peaks are closed by smooth semicircular lines, the ends of which pass into the corners of the upper part of the waterfall.
- Mountain details.
Draw some vertical strokes on the mountains. This is how you mark bumps and ridges on the mountains.
- Add a pond at the foot.
At the bottom, draw a jagged line at the bottom. The edges of this line are closed behind the mountains in a semicircle. That is, in the waterfall image, you create a body of water that surrounds the hills.
- Color the drawing.
Choose brown colors for mountains. And for the image of a waterfall, a stream, splashes, and lakes are suitable for different shades of blue: blue, blue, purple. If necessary, you can dream up and add additional elements to the picture. For example, paint the nearby grass and trees.
