Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a bucket of paint. So to draw the bucket of paint I'm going to start with the bucket shape, which is a cylinder, so I'm just doing that with a rounded, oval at the top for the opening, at the top of the paint can, and then two vertical lines and a matching curve at the bottom to make the paint can shape, so that's sort of a cylinder, and then the paint can has a little handle, and I draw that by putting a circle here where it joins on, and then it just comes out like that, and that would, you could carry the paint bucket that way, you could even do like an interior rim there, cause they do have that for where the cap squeezes on. And let's say this paint is pink and it's pretty full, so you can see a little bit of it in the top of the can, and it's always possible that some paint would be dripping out, cause say you poured some paint and a little bit might drip down the sides, and there might be like a little bit around the can, cause painting is messy and sometimes it just gets out. And you could put a paintbrush nearby, just as like a little sort of detail, there's the handle and these are the bristles, and let's put some of the paint on the end, so it would be sort of, have some of the paint on the bristles, and then it's like in that little paint mess. And then the paint can has a label, it comes around like that, and I'm just going to right "paint", just to make it perfectly clear that it is a can of paint. And that is how I draw a bucket of paint.
