How to Draw a Glass of Water

Uploaded by FineArtEBooks on 06.11.2012

Hello my friends and welcome to another Tuesday of tutorial!
I am Leonardo Pereznieto, and so that you know,
if you speak Spanish,
and you would rather listen to the videos in your own language,
you can do so in my other channel: ArteDivierte.
But if you speak any other language, you can look if it has been translated
and subtitled into it, using the CC button below.
If you find that it has not been translated into your language yet
and you would like to do the translation, which I would appreciate,
you may do so, following the instructions below the video.
Ok. Now, because a lot of you requested it, I am going to draw a glass with water.
First I sketch an oval for the top of the glass.
And then the sides.
I want a straw.
Then another oval for the water and for the base.
Of course the straw will deflect under the water.
For the shadow I will use a hard charcoal pencil,
which then I smudge with the brush.
With charcoal powder and a brush, I tone the paper.
For the glass I am using an H and a 4B lead holders
with graphite leads.
You can find the full list of materials in the information under the video.
With a kneaded eraser and a pencil eraser I pull some lights.
I refine the form and give some shadows.
In the center of the shadow there will be a concentrated light.
There will be some distortion effect at the brim.
Lets do some water drops! I love doing water drops, as you know.
I continue detailing and then smudging, to get the soft effect.
I do the final touches!
Please let me know what do you think about it.
