How to draw a waterfall step by step

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below

You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a long, curved line that looks like an upside-down “L”. This line forms one of the rock faces from which your waterfall flows.

Step 2

Draw a short curved line extending from the top of the rock face. Then, from this line, draw a long curved line. You have just sketched the flow of water over your waterfall.

Step 3

Add detail and texture of the water flowing into the waterfall. Draw long and short curved lines of different sizes along the length of the waterfall. At the bottom of the waterfall, draw some curved, wavy lines in a circle. These lines represent the turbulence that occurs when fast-moving water meets the rocks at the bottom of the falls.

Step 4

Draw some rocks at the bottom of the waterfall. For each rock, surround an irregular shape with a curved line.

Step 5

Delete the guide lines if necessary.

Step 6

The plant likes to grow in moist places at the bottom of waterfalls. Draw them! First, use a series of many small, interconnected, “U” shaped lines to outline the shrub. Notice how the outline of the bush is not only round, but also undulating and wavy. Then texture the bush by drawing a series of curved lines, joined together, a “U” shape inside it.

Step 7

Draw the rock face on the opposite side of the waterfall using some long, curved lines that are joined together.

Step 8

Draw more water splashes and ripples at the bottom of the waterfall. Draw a wavy line to represent the turbulence at the bottom and draw more wavy lines around the circles drawn in the previous steps. Surrounds a number of teardrop shapes, representing splashes of water from the falls.

Step 9

Add the final details to your landscape. Draw a long curved line at the top of the waterfall and include additional teardrop shapes along its length. Draw jagged, wavy lines along the rock face to give it a rough texture.
