Step 1 – Drawing the Canopy

Begin by drawing the fabric part of the umbrella, known as the canopy. To do this, draw a big curve for the top part of the canopy. Then, connect the bottom of the curve with three smaller curves, as shown in the example above. Try to keep your curves smooth and symmetrical. If you’re having trouble with symmetry, you can draw a light vertical line down the middle of the umbrella to help guide you. You can erase this line later when you no longer need it.

Step 2 – Adding the Ribs

Next, add the ribs of the umbrella. These are the lines that connect the tips of the bottom curves to the middle of the upper curve of the canopy. This will create three separate sections. Again, make sure to draw smooth and symmetrical curves for the ribs.

Step 3 – Drawing the Pole

Now, draw the pole of the umbrella. Starting from the middle of the canopy, draw a straight and thin line downwards. If you’re having trouble making the line straight, you can use a ruler to assist you. Also, ensure that the pole is vertical and not tilted to one side.

Step 4 – Adding the Tip

Moving up from the top of the canopy, add the small tip that umbrellas usually have. This should be a simple vertical line. Make sure it’s straight so that the umbrella doesn’t appear distorted.

Step 5 – Drawing the Handle

To complete the line drawing of the umbrella, draw the handle. Start by drawing a straight line for the handle. Then, add a smooth curve as it goes down. The handle should be slightly thicker than the pole but not overly disproportionate to the rest of the umbrella.

Step 6 – Coloring the Umbrella

Finally, it’s time to add some color to your umbrella drawing. You can choose any colors you like for the canopy. In the example above, we used yellow, blue, and red, as these colors are fun and complementary. The tip and pole of the umbrella are usually metallic, so you can color them with a light gray. As for the handle, a light brown color works well.


Drawing an umbrella from the side view may seem daunting at first, but with these simple steps, it can be a breeze. By ensuring good proportions, clean lines, and choosing appealing colors, even a simple drawing can turn out beautifully. We hope this tutorial has helped you on your artistic journey. Get creative and have fun!
