Step by step How to draw mountains
- Now I am going to draw this mountain. First I am going to pick a spot on the paper where I will be drawing it.
- Draw a straight line that is horizontal. Then, draw two small straight lines that are vertical.
- Draw a triangle shape for the outline of the mountain. Then start drawing lines from the top of the point of the mountain. Then slope down the lines. Draw these lines lightly, as they will be erased later.
- Now turn the straight lines into curved lines. And erase the straight lines. Once you are done with drawing the curved lines and erasing the straight lines, now time to draw the snowflakes.
Now it is time to color it. Here I have used water color. Use a blender for making it lighter from the darker shade. Here I’ve used water brush pen to blend the color from darker to lighter.
Here you are done with the snowy mountains. This was the method number one of drawing it very easily. With just four easy steps. Now let us move on to method number two.
