22 Easy Cloud Drawing Ideas

I’m so happy clouds exist – They’re just so beautiful, puffy, and calming to watch.

Plus, they give us exciting things to experience like rain, snow, and thunderstorms πŸ™‚ (As long as they’re not too extreme!)

That’s why I decided to draw clouds next in today’s blog post!

Here is a little collection of simple cloud drawing ideas to try out in your sketchbook or doodle page.

I feel like we all try to draw clouds eventually – so I have also included some creative ways to draw clouds as well! For a little twist to a simple cloud doodle.

Now, let’s get to the drawings! I hope you enjoy!

1. Step-By-Step Drawing

Let’s first start off with a simple step-by-step overview on how to draw a simple cloud.

Step 1 is essentially drawing your cloud shape. There are so many drawing styles so feel free to draw whatever cloud shape you like πŸ™‚

Step 2 is just adding little details to your cloud, such as puffy lines.

Step 3 is adding shadows to the bottom of your cloud and wherever you like, depending on the light source.

You can use these steps as a basic guideline for any other cloud drawings you create.

2. Cloud Shapes

Here are some different shapes and styles you can draw your cloud as.

I used a combination of a black ink pen to outline the clouds, a pencil to create shadows, and a colored pencil to color in the sky.
