How to draw a pool floaty step 1

Starting with a pink pen, draw a curved line around an inch (2.5 cm) from the bottom of the page, making sure it is roughly in the center.

Add a curved line, rising from the left hand side and crossing up and over to the right hand side – when you are done, this should look a little like an upside down boat.


3.

Switch to a red pen, and draw a small, curved shape inside the upside down boat – keep the edges soft and gently curved on this. It should be almost “bean like” in shape.

Next, take a blue pen, and add another line to the one you started with, making sure that this is a little thicker. You should just be able to see the original pink line above the blue.


5.

Return to the pink pen, and draw another boat shape emerging from the blue line – this one should be right side up, rather than upside down.

Now, fill in both boat shapes with the pink pen – leave the small “bean shape” empty for the moment.


7.

Take the blue pen, and fill in the bean shape in the top of the drawing.

Now, grab a red pen, and add a smooth semicircle shape emerging from the top left hand side of your drawing.


9.

Using the same color, draw a second semicircle shape connected to the first. Keep a slight gap between the bottom of the line and the top of your original shape.


10.

Add a third connected to the second – make sure that each new addition shares a left hand line with the last, so that you get a “bumpy” effect emerging from the top of your original shape.


11.

Add a fourth semicircle, once again connecting this to the previous shape, and leaving a slight gap between the end of the line and the top of your original shape.


12.

Repeat the shape a fifth time, this time slightly extending the gap between the end of the line and the top of the original shape.


13.

Next, add a flat, “worm” shape to the top of your original drawing on the left hand side – this should start just inside the line of the original shape, and end roughly in line with the fourth semicircle you drew.


14.

Add a curved line extending from the top of the “worm” shape, so that you end up with a dome.


15.

Add a second “dome” just above the first, this time slightly to the right.


16.

Move to the middle of the second dome you just drew, and draw a long, curved line, almost like an “S” with a squashed bottom, emerging from the center.


17.

Add another line parallel to the first, and join them at the top with a curved line – do you see the animal we are creating yet?


18.

Add a slightly thicker line to the neck of your “S” using the same pink shade.


19.

Switch back to the blue pen you were using earlier, and add a small triangle to the bottom of the top curve of the “S”, and a small dot just above this – you should now be able to see the beak, eye and shape of the flamingo which sits on top of your floaty!


20.

Grab a red highlighter pen, and use this to carefully fill in the main body of your flamingo, as well as the tail – this is made up of the “bumps” you drew earlier!


21.

Finish up by returning to the red pen, and using this to create definition between the separate parts of the tail, as well as tidy up any outlines.


And just like that, you have created your very own stunning pool floaty! The next step is up to you; perhaps you will draw the pool to complete the scene, or experiment with different colors and patterns? Either way, you have the crucial first step for an epic summer scene – enjoy!
