How to Draw a Harbor Scene in 5 Steps

1. Sketch the Boats


Begin this scene in the upper center of the drawing area. For the boats, draw three long, narrow shapes with a pointed end, or bow, on the right side. Make them with nearly straight lines for the tops and curved lines for the bottoms.

­Draw the pointed end of the fourth boat on the left. To place the piers between boats, first draw small but long rectangles near the hulls as shown. These will be the ends of the piers. Draw three straight lines back to the left that come together slightly (it may help to practice drawing these pier shapes on a separate piece of paper).
