How to Draw a Clock Easily Step by Step
Step 1: Face of the Clock
First of all, you have to grab your paper and pencil to start the clock drawing. I have used 6B pencil and 300 gsm watercolor paper for this drawing. But you can use your own favorites.
So, start by drawing the face of the clock using a simple circle. As it’ll determine the clock size, draw it in that way.
Step 2: Draw the Outer Rim
After drawing the clock face, you need to draw the outer rim of the clock. It will make the clock look realistic. For the outer rim, you just need to draw another big circle outside of the previous one.
Step 3: Add the Bells and Feet
At this stage, you have to add the clock bells and feet. As I am drawing an alarm clock, bells are a must for this drawing. Bells will make the drawing look similar to the real one.
So, draw two half-circles over the outer rim to make the bells. For the feet draw two small U shapes on the bottom side of the outer rim just like the reference image.
Step 4: Draw the Hammer and Clock Center
Now, it’s time to draw the main part of an alarm clock, which is the hammer. It will help to ring the bell. For the hammer, draw a nail-like shape over the outer rim just between the two bells.
It means that when it is time, the hammer will hit the bells and the clock will ring. However, draw a small circle in the middle of the clock face to indicate the center.
Step 5: Add the Clock Hands and Time Divisions
Finally, draw short lines all over the clock face. Make sure to have equal spaces between every line. It will be the time divisions of the clock. There will be a total number of 12 short lines inside the clock face.
Then draw two arrows for the clock hands. One arrow should be small, which is the hour hand and the other will be a bigger one, which will be the minute hand. And yes, your easy clock drawing is ready.
Color the Drawing
To make your clock drawing more attractive, put some color into it. I have used purple color for the clock body and light shades of black for the other areas.
I have used watercolor markers for this purpose but you can use any of your favorite colors.
