Draw a sailboat by sketching the sails and hull, drawing the seating area and adding the details. This project takes only a few minutes and requires a piece of paper and a pencil.
- Sketch the sails
Draw a tall triangle with the left side curving slightly and the bottom slanting downward for the first sail. Next to it and one-half inch lower, sketch a another triangle that only comes to the middle of the first one. Keep the left side of the triangle straight and the right side curved.
- Add the hull
Add a curved rectangle just below the first sail. Allow the edges to come to a rounded point in front of the second shorter sail.
- Draw the seating area of the boat
On the left side of the hull, draw a sideways rounded door shape. On the right side of the door shape, add a notched square. This is the seating area.
- Add the details of the sails
On the right side of the first sail, draw a long mast. On the left side of both sails, sketch a horizontal line one-third of the way down the sail and another line one-third of the way below the first line. At the bottom of both sail, add horizontal crossbars.
- Draw the details of the hull
Add edge lines around the hull with a bar at the front. Draw lines in the seating area to give the area a three-dimensional quality. Sketch a V-shape at the left side of the hull, and add lines to give it depth.
