STEP 1. Drawing a sunset is very easy if you follow the steps properly. For step one you will first need to draw a horizontal line for the water end and then another slanted horizontal line for the beach line. Next draw a circle that falls into the ocean and two vertical lines on each side of the sunset scene.   STEP 2. You will start this step teaching yourself how to draw palm trees. Start at the bottom of the stump and then work your way up and make sure the shapes are drawn looking like a q-tip. Draw three oddly shaped circles for the coconuts and then some strand lines for the palm tree leaves.   STEP 3. Here you will start sketching out the actual shape and flow of the palm tree leaves. I wanted my palm trees to look soft and full so you will need to draw them loose and floppy almost. Once that is done you can start sketching in the ocean water lines as you see here. For my sunset the ocean is a bit rippled.   STEP 4. Start sketching in more palm tree leaves on the lower part of the left palm tree as seen here. Add some detailing to the leaves and then lightly sketch out some grass lines that is gently blowing in the wind. You will then add some more ocean ripple lines on the beach water.   STEP 5. This is your last drawing step. What you will do now is detail the trunks of the palm trees and then add some light shading to define the trees. As you know coconuts are not brown when still in a tree, they are green and have to be cut open to expose the fiber like seed that is inside. All you need to do is add some shading on the coconuts and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Once you are done with your sketch it should come out looking like the one you see here. All you need to do is add some fantastic colors and then you have just finished this lesson on how to draw a sunset step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
