How to Draw Lights

Artist: Dawn / December 9, 2010

Step 1.

Here is a drawing out two different lights that are available on the market today. The most typical kind of light used on trees is the first small light bulb. The second light is commonly used on both interior and exterior decorating.

Step 2.

Lets start drawing the strand for the lights which will hold them to the wire. Just draw a wavy horizontal line like you see here.

Step 3.

Now you will draw more of the same line because as you know, Christmas lights are wired in sets and each seat has their own wire. When you are done your lines should turn out looking like hair strands.

Step 4.

Now you will draw in your lights which are really bulbs connected to a plastic base which has two fine copper wires that touch the strand thread when inserted into the plastic housing unit. I chose to draw outside lights. There is no lines or shapes    

Step 5.

When you are done, here is what your lights look like. Now you can color them in and place them on your freshly drawn tree. I hope you liked this tutorial that showed you all how to draw lights.
