First, divide a sheet of paper into two parts with the help of a horizon line. You need it to understand where you should draw trees and where you should draw clouds.
Foreground is a part of the drawing, which is closer to us. Draw a small hill in the foreground because Savannah is uneven.
The items in the background are not clear. Depict the outline of the other hills which are far away with the help of wavy lines.
Draw a tree trunk in the central ground. It’s more uneven than we get used to see.
The most common trees of Africa are acacia trees and baobabs. These trees have thin trunks, but they have a very broad crowns where the animals like to be.
That’s why the side branches should be bent to the sides. Let your child draw branches by himself or herself because you don’t need any ruler to draw them.
Small branches go from the main ones. There are several of them on each main branch.
The more branches you draw, the bigger will be the crown. Branches end on the same line.
Draw the thick crown’s contours at the top.
The sun is much closer to the Earth in Africa in comparison with northern countries. Draw it as a large circle which is half hidden behind the horizon.
Erase unnecessary lines.
Draw an elephant in the background of the sun – it’s one of the African animals.
If you have the contours, form the animal’s head. Draw big ears, trunk and tusks.
Correct the elephant ‘s drawing and erase unnecessary lines.
Make the animal’s lines more smooth and add small details.
Draw the tree crown with the help of small wavy lines which similar to the sheep’s fleece.
There are also clouds in Savannah. But they are small and melt very quickly. Mark the location of the clouds with the help of short strokes.
Draw fluffy tops at the lines’ top.
The main colors of Savannah are brown and orange. Even the grass has a yellowish color there. Color the trunk and branches of the tree in brown, the tree’s crown is green. The elephant is gray, the sky is blue and the sun is yellow or orange. You can also add another animals, for example, lion or tiger.
