Drawing the Kaaba

This is a free lesson and must not to be reproduced or printed for commercial reasons without permission from the author of this blog. All rights reserved.

Step one - Draw a line across the bottom half of your paper. This your horizon line. It separates the foreground from the background.

Step Two - Draw a square making sure that most of the shape is above the horizon line. Step Three -Draw another square behind square number one, making sure that it finished below the horizon line and a little to the side.

Step four - Now join the two squares by drawing straight lines (red lines) from the four corners.Step Five -Draw four more straight lines (red lines). Two on the square number one and two on the side facing you in a slight angle.
Step six - To add the background, start by adding two horizontal lines (green lines) and drawing the tower.
Step seven - Next to draw the arches, draw some vertical lines (green lines).
Step eight - To complete the arches draw some slightly curved lines ( blue lines)
Step nine -You are ready to color. Color square number one with black leaving the space between the two red lines blank. Color the top space in a light brown or any other light color. Color the side in a medium grey. Color the band around the Kaaba in yellow.

Step ten - Add in the color for the sky. There is no need to add any cloud since this is the desert sky and it does not need clouds. You can add a little if you like. Add the color for the sand. It can range from light brown to ochre and with a little texture can really look nice. You can continue to add as much details as you like. Arabic can be added to the yellow band too. Have fun!!!
