How to draw an aesthetic scenery? | Color pencil drawing | Raining colors

Things required

  • Graphite pencils – 9B to 5B
  • Color pencils – shades of brown, orange, yellow, red and white
  • Eraser, sharpener and ruler

1. Draw the outlines

Pencil drawing – Outlines

I’ve chosen a simple scenery, a girl under a bright lamp post. So there is no complex background in the base drawing.

2. Shading road and background

Pencil drawing – Shading

To begin with, I’ve shaded the lamp post dark at the base and lighter as it goes up. Colors used here are light brown, dark brown, yellow and 9B graphite pencil. For the roads and background, stick to the pattern while drawing strokes. Since same set of colors are used, it will be easier to differentiate between the two roads and the background. (It will look nice too, rather than a chaos😊) The colors used here are – shades of brown, yellow, orange and 9B graphite pencil.

3. Shading the girl

Pencil drawing – Shading

Shade the girl as dark as possible using the softest pencil you’ve got. As for me, I used 9B. Do not fill the space that’s immediately outside the outline of the girl with colors. Leave it white, with very light yellow strokes to give the effect of light illumination from behind the girl.

As an alternative option, shades of green can be added to the strokes at the edges of the road to give the effect of plants.

How to draw a cherry blossom scenery? | Pencil drawing nature

1. Drawing outlines

Pencil drawing – Outlines

The concept here is a rainy road with bushes on the sides and a cherry blossom tree. So I’ve outlined accordingly. To add some texture to the tree trunk, strokes are drawn instead of flat tone shading.

2. Drawing bushes

Pencil drawing – Bushes

There are various techniques to draw bushes. Here I’ve used simple and random leaf shading.

3. Adding depth to bushes

Pencil drawing – Adding depth

To add a little depth to the bushes, overlap the gray shades leaves with little darker leaves of random pattern. I’ve used 6B graphite pencil here. I’ve also used pink and gray colour in the path to create the concept of reflection after a rain.

4. Finishing up with Cherry Blossoms

Pencil drawing – Cherry Blossoms

To finish up the drawing, I’ve drawn pink leaves representing cherry blossoms, in a random pattern. Also, I’ve used gray color for the buildings in the background.

Things needed

The pencils used are graphite – 6B, 7B, 8B. The colors used are pink, gray and white. Apart from these, the other thing that’s needed is a tiny bit of patience as well.😄
