Farming is perhaps the oldest human profession. Farms differ from place to place, but their goal is the same - to produce food and other useful products from plants and animals.

Farmers are often featured in popular culture. Children's songs like "Old McDonald Had a Farm" focus on elements of farm life.

Artwork in the Americana style often centers on rural farm life. One example of this is the famous painting American Gothic, which pictures a farmer holding a pitchfork - just like the one in our drawing guide!

What does a farmer use a pitchfork for, anyway? It is a tool used to "pitch" or throw hay.

It can also be used to turn the soil or separate grains of wheat from the inedible chaff. Now you know.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Farmer

How to Draw a Farmer Step 01

1. Begin by drawing the farmer's straw hat. Use a curved line to outline the wide brim, and another line within it to form the opening. Use curved lines to enclose a rectangular shape on top of the hat, forming the part called the crown. Draw a line across the crown to indicate the hatband.

2. Next, draw the man's face. Use overlapping curved lines to draw the hair on the forehead, the nose and nostril, and the ear. Connect these shapes with curved lines, thus outlining the face. Then, use curved lines to enclose the shape of the hair at the back of the head.

4. Begin sketching the collared shirt and overalls. Use curved lines to draw the neck, connected by a curved "V" shaped line. On each side of the "V," enclose the curved rectangular shapes of the collar.

Use curved lines to enclose a square shape below the collar, and draw a line down the center to indicate the placket or opening of the shirt. On each side of the square, double a long line back upon itself and connect the ends.

These are the shoulder straps of the overalls. Draw an oval at the bottom of each to indicate the button.
