How to Draw A Teapot – Let’s Get Started!
To get this guide on how to draw a teapot started, we shall start with the lid of the teapot. You can start this by drawing a small circle at the very top of the teapot.
Then, you can extend two curved lines down from this circle, and once you have drawn that then you can draw a rim at the base of the lid.
Once this lid is complete, all you need to do is draw two curved lines coming down from the rim, as these will form the start of the sides of the teapot itself.
That’s all there is to it for this step, so now you can proceed to step 2 of the guide!
Step 2 – Now, draw the outline for the body of the teapot
For the next part of this teapot drawing, we will be drawing the outline for the rounded body of the teapot.
First, draw another thin rim using two curved lines connecting the two lines that you drew coming down from the lid in the previous step.
Once this new rim has been drawn, the next thing we will do will be to draw two more long curved lines coming down from the sides of the rim.
These lines will almost connect near the bottom, but there will be a small gap left near the right-hand side of the base.
Step 3 – Draw the rest of the base and some decorative elements
To continue this guide on how to draw a teapot, we will be drawing the rest of the base of the teapot. Before you draw the base, we will be adding another decorative element to the body of the teapot.
All you need to do is draw two more curved lines close to one another and spanning the entire width of the center of the teapot body.
Then, you will be ready to draw the rest of the base. To do this, draw a curved line from one side of the base exterior to the other, and then draw another one under this.
The reference image will show you how this should look, and when it’s done we can move to step 4!
Step 4 – Next, start drawing the handle and spout
This teapot drawing of yours may look a bit short and stout, so for this step we shall be drawing the handle and the spout.
The handle will go on the left-hand side of the teapot, and it should be pretty easy to draw. All you need to do is draw a rounded line coming off the side, and then draw another one over it.
Then, you will be ready to draw the spout. This will again be drawn with some curved lines to create the spout extending off the right-hand side and reaching upward.
Once the handle and spout are complete, you will be ready to decorate this teapot in the next step.
Step 5 – Add the final details to your teapot drawing
Now you’re ready to add some decoration and final details in this step of our guide on how to draw a teapot. In our reference image, we went with a pretty floral design for the teapot.
Each flower on the body has a small circle at the center of it with some curved lines with sharp points on it for each petal.
You could replicate this same design for your own drawing, but you should also feel free to make your own pattern design if you wish!
You could also add to the image by drawing a background for it, and this would be a great way to show what you would enjoy with this pot of tea.
Step 6 – Finish off your teapot drawing with color
In this final step of your teapot drawing, you will be able to finish it off with some colors! In our reference image, we went for some shades of greens for the body of the teapot.
Then, for the flower decorations we went with some light pinks and yellows to make them pop off the green body of the teapot.
This is another great chance for you to show off your creativity as you choose the art mediums and color shades that you think would best suit your creation.
Be sure to have fun getting creative with it and see what happens!
