I invite you to a new drawing lesson in which I will show you how to draw a skyline. This lesson will be very helpful for you.
Especially for children and beginners, I have prepared a fascinating lesson on how to draw a skyline. This instruction includes only seven steps, and you will quickly master this creative task.
In this case, you will draw a line that connects the sky and the roofs of the city buildings. Freehand lines are allowed in this tutorial, and the shape of the buildings in your drawing may differ slightly from my example. You can see that the buildings are not detailed, and you will only draw the top outline with different shaped lines.
