How to Draw A Bell easy with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy drawing tutorial for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
In the first part of the tutorial on how to draw a bell, we will start with the outline of the bell. We will use a circle for the top of the bell, and that line will bulge out into the mouth of the bell.
Then draw a curved line horizontally across the bell to end the bell mouth. At the bottom of the bell, there will be an empty space that you will draw the bell clip in later.
That should prepare you for the next few steps, so move on to step 2!
Step 2 – Next, draw the clamp and some details for the bell ring
Now that you have the outline of the bell, you can start drawing some details into the picture.
Bells won’t work properly without people clapping, so we’ll draw that first in this step. To draw this, draw some short lines from the blank and then draw a circle over the lines, as shown in the reference image.
Then draw another curved line along the mouth of the bell to contour its lips. Finally, we’ll end this step by drawing another line near the top of the bell.
Step 3 – Now draw the handle of the bell
As much as the bell wouldn’t be very useful without a clamp, it wouldn’t be easy to use without a handle either.
That’s why we are going to add a bell now in this step of the tutorial on how to draw a bell. To draw this handle, first extend two short, fairly straight lines up from the top of the bell. Then draw a thin strip along the width of the handle.
Then draw a curved line up for the rest of the handle, as shown in the reference image. This will be available for some more in the next step!
Step 4 – Next, draw some details on the handle
The handle of the bell will usually be made from polished wood, and we will paint some wood details on the handle in this step of your bell drawing.
To do this we will draw a series of wavy lines on the handle and this will help to recreate the look of the wood.
That should complete the bulk of this drawing, and in the next two steps we’ll add some final details as well as some great colors to really finish it off.
Step 5 – Now you can complete the final details of your bell drawing
In this fifth part of our how to draw a bell tutorial, we’ll finalize the details and strokes before moving on to the final part.
These final strokes will be quite simple to add, but they will also be really effective at bringing the drawings together in a unique way.
We’ll go through these details step-by-step, and we’ll start with clapping. You can add a small curve to the ball at the end of the grip.
Then we’ll draw some more curves inside the bell, extending from the mouth and beyond. These lines will curve in such a way that they suggest bell curvature.
Finally, we’ll add some lines along the handle to get a little more detail there. That will wrap up the details in this tutorial, but now you can add some of your own details that you might want to your images!
You can add some elements like a background, a hand holding a bell or maybe a pattern that the bell can be incorporated into.
There are so many cool ideas you can come up with and we can’t wait to see what you decide to choose to get this done!
Step 6 – Finish your bell drawing with some colors
You’ve worked hard on your bell drawing, so now you can have fun coloring it to finish it off!
In our reference image, we used several shades of gold for the bell’s metal to give it a metallic look.
Then we used some shades of brown for the polished wood of the handle. That’s how we chose the colors in our example, but here’s where you can get creative with it and let us know what colors you think would work best for this picture.
You can also experiment and experiment with your favorite art tools and media to really bring color to life.
We can’t wait to see what wonderful colors and mediums you used to complete this amazing bell drawing!
