How to Draw a Celtic Heart Knot


A heart knot is just what the name suggests- a heart! Sketch out a heart and where the two ends meet at the top, bring both sides down and together to form a diamond.


Using the lines for the diamond, make three interlocking lines as shown in blue. All three of them should be slight curved.

Description: All celtic designs are known for two things: they run on infinitely using a single line and they are intricate. Most celtic designs look dreadfully intimidating to make. But, when you take it easily step-by-step, it really isn't all that hard to draw. This heart knot that I will be teaching you how to draw is fairly simple. Beginners will definitely be able to do it but, as for any artist, experienced or not, it will take a bit of determination and time. But nonetheless, this is a beautiful piece of celtic art for all to experience. Enjoy!
