How to Draw an Umbrella – Step by Step Guide

Let’s Get Started!

Step 1

Start by drawing a large semi-circle in the center of your paper. This will be the body of the umbrella, also known as the canopy.

Step 2 – Draw the Topmost Part of the Umbrella

Now, let’s add the bottom part of the umbrella, called the gore or the bottom part of the canopy. Draw the first of four small curved lines.

Step 3 – Draw the First Layer of Canopy of the Umbrella

In this step, repeat Step 2 and draw the second gore of the umbrella. This will be another small curved line.

Step 4 – Afterwards, Draw Another Layer of Canopy

This time, repeat Step 2 again and draw the third gore of the umbrella. Draw another small curved line.

Step 5 – Next, Draw the Third Layer of Canopy

This will be the final time you repeat Step 2. Create the final gore of the umbrella and draw another curved line connecting the third gore to the rightmost part of the canopy.

Step 6 – Then, Draw the Last Canopy of the Umbrella

In this step, draw the “trunk” of the umbrella, also known as the shaft. Draw two vertical lines, as shown in the illustration. The umbrella is finally taking shape!

Step 7 – Draw the Long Shaft of the Umbrella

This time, create the handle of the umbrella. Draw a small “J”-like shape and connect it to the lower part of the shaft.

Step 8 – Afterwards, Draw the Handle of the Umbrella

In this step, create the tip or ferrule of the umbrella. Draw a small upside-down “V” shape right on top of the canopy, adding it in the middle.

Step 9 – Now, Add Details and Patterns on the Umbrella

To make the umbrella look more realistic, add the rib part inside the canopy and the tips at the bottom part of the rib. Add long curved lines for the canopy and tiny curved lines for the tips, as shown. It’s time to add color to your umbrella to make it pop! You can use different colors and tints to personalize your umbrella.
