I’m so happy that the clouds exist – They’re so beautiful, swollen and soothing to look at.
In addition, it gives us interesting things to experience, such as rain, snow and storms 🙂 (as long as they are not too extreme!)
That’s why I decided to draw clouds in today’s blog post!
Here is a small collection of simple cloud drawing ideas to try in your sketchbook or doodle page.
I feel like we’re all trying to draw clouds in the end – so we’ve included some creative ways to draw clouds! For a little twist of a simple cloud doodle.
Now, let’s move on to the drawings! I hope you like it!
1. Draw step by step
Let’s start with a simple, step-by-step presentation on how to draw a simple cloud.
Step 1 is essentially to draw the shape of your cloud. There are so many drawing styles, so feel free to draw any cloud shape you like 🙂
Step 2 is just adding small details in the cloud, such as swollen lines.
Step 3 is adding shadows to the bottom of your cloud and wherever you want, depending on the light source.
You can use these steps as a basic guide to any other drawings you create.
2. Cloud shapes
Here are some different shapes and styles in which you can draw your cloud.
I used a combination of a black ink pen to outline the clouds, a pencil to create shadows and a colored pencil to color the sky.
3. The moon and the clouds
This pencil drawing is from another post on my blog, 30 light drawing ideas of the month.
