Why are prompts for winter things to draw so helpful?

A winter drawing prompt list can help get your creativity flowing whether it’s snowing or cold or you’re stuck indoors on a foggy day.

Drawing prompts are typically used by artists as part of their process when drawing from life, sketching ideas for paintings or other art projects, and in children’s illustration work.

Drawing in winter can be fun, and can help you learn about the science behind various natural phenomena. It’s a great time to practice the art of drawing in the dark and snowy winter seasons.

Fun Tips & Ideas for Using your Winter Drawing Prompts

Draw on winter leaves.

Use permanent markers or pens to draw on dried-out winter leaves! You can also brush winter leaves with watercolor paint and then press them onto paper.

Draw winter scenes.

What winter scene will you draw? Your drawing could be of winter trees, winter mountains, winter skies, winter buildings. It’s up to you!

First, draw the foreground elements first. For example, if you’d like to draw trees, you’ll want to use a technique that emphasizes the smoothness of the snowy background. You can also add other elements, such as a distant horizon, to add interest to your drawing.

Explore different drawing mediums.

Pen, pencil, gel pens, charcoal, watercolor, colored pencils, you name it! Try out something you don’t usually use to challenge yourself!

Using the proper materials is an essential part of drawing in winter. Using hot pressed watercolor paper or a bristol board will help your results be more crisp and sharp. A good choice for drawing in winter is a sheet of white or gray paper, but you can also use off-white papers for the final step. You may also choose to use colored pencils to give your finished drawing a more vibrant appearance.

Make festive wintery cards for your friends!

Draw winter-themed cards for your friends or family to send out some winter warmth.

Make winter crafts!

You can use some of these winter drawing prompts as winter crafts or winter art. Use your winter drawings as winter decorations, like paintings on wooden boards and winter picture frames… Or even winter calendars!
