Draw with me: striped lighthouse

4개월 전


Today I draw a striped lighthouse. And here you can see step-by-step tutorial for drawing the lighthouse with finecolour markers.


  1. I outline the lighthouse with a thin black liner.
    Light falls from left to right, which means the left side will be in the light, and the right side in the shadow.
    On the right side, the marker is darker in tone compared to the left side of the lighthouse.
  2. For the cylindrical part, I use 4 gray markers at once: the lightest on the left, leave part of the unpainted sheet and make a smooth gradient from light to dark and vice versa.
  3. I take the grays darker: now the right-most part is drawn with the marker, which on the cylindrical part was the darkest. In the same way, I stretch from light to dark and vice versa (only the tone of the markers is darker).
  4. I make red stripes by analogy: from light red to dark and vice versa.
    The roof is light red, imitating shingles with stripes - the tone is darker.
  5. I draw the fences at the top of the lighthouse with the darkest gray. Add medium gray under the roof of the house and on the pipe.
    Two green imitate grass.
  6. I draw a wire with a liner, add boards on the house.
    I take a white gel pen and put glare on the roof and on the fencing elements of the upper part of the lighthouse. And in the bars on the window.
    I have not yet decided in what format to show another lighthouse. I’ll probably upload a video))

Such a cool tip about the shading! Totally makes sense about the lighting, but always neat to see how artists interpret natural shading in their artwork. Something that seems simple up front is really so intricate when you break it down. Love this piece as I do so many of your others!


Very cool!

Lighthouses! There is something romantic about them, I've always loved them. I don't draw - how many hobbies can one have - but am so grateful to all artists because I love looking at art. Your posts help me understand what has gone into them. For instance, I never would have guessed the grey shading goes on before the red stripes. Cool info in this, thanks
