Drawing a chandelier may seem daunting at first, but with a little patience and practice, anyone can do it. In this step-by-step guide, we will help you create a stunning chandelier drawing that will impress everyone who sees it.
Before starting your chandelier drawing, you will need the following materials:
- Pencil and eraser
- Coloring materials (optional)
Step 1: Draw the Chandelier’s frame
Begin by using a ruler to draw a vertical line down the center of your paper. This line will serve as the chandelier’s axis. Use a compass to draw a circle around the central line, which will be the main frame of the chandelier. Sketch the shape of the chandelier’s arms using curved lines, making sure to keep them symmetrical from the axis of the chandelier.
Step 2: Sketch the details
With the main shape mapped out, start drawing in the details. Carefully sketch in each arm of the chandelier, including any decorative elements or embellishments. Add the candles by sketching in small circles on each arm.
Step 3: Add dimension
To add depth and dimension to your chandelier drawing, start by shading the areas that would be in shadow. Use a pencil to draw lines and create shadows around the arms of the chandelier, and where the arms connect to the main frame. Using an eraser, go back and lighten the areas that would be reflecting light.
Step 4: Color it in (optional)
If you want to add some color to your chandelier drawing, now is the time to do so. Add hues to the candles, arms, and decorative elements of the chandelier. Consider adding gold or silver tones to give your chandelier a royal and elegant look.
