We’re building The Line Library™, a treasure trove for artists that will include hundreds of hand-drawn templates and reference photos:

🏔 Landscapes
🌺 Botanicals and florals
🦊 Animals
🍊 Still life templates
👩 People and portraits (more coming soon!)

Currently 165+ templates to choose from with more being added each month!

Curated, High-Res, and Royalty Free

Each line drawing is paired with a beautiful, hand-picked reference photo. With resolutions this high, you can zoom in to see every detail. And because they’re royalty-free, you can use them for personal OR commercial work.

Unlimited Downloads: Print-ready PDF line drawings and reference photos. Scale to any size, trace onto your surface, and add your favorite medium!

Royalty Free: Use for personal or commercial work! The photos and templates themselves may not be re-sold or re-purposed, but you can sell the artwork that you create! (See FAQs below for more details.)

All Mediums: Works for watercolors, gouache, acrylic, oil, pastel, colored pencil, and more!

Future Updates: Get access to ALL future reference photos and line drawings that are added to The Line Library™.

Quality Compositions: Elevate your artwork by starting with a beautifully composed reference photo and template… without the need to draw!

Easy Search: Find the perfect line drawings and reference photos with intuitive categories and an easy-to-use search tool.

We think you'll love our templates, but if you're not absolutely satisfied within 30 days, just contact us at and we'll refund your purchase, no questions asked.

Right away! You'll get instruction via email on how to access your templates.

No; our templates (and the free matching photos that come with them) will help you get inspired and apply the skills you’ve already learned. For help with technique, see our wide variety of online classes!

No. Download and print the reference photos and line drawings as many times as you need to. You can sell the artwork you create USING the reference photos and line drawings, but the photos and drawings themselves may not be resold or reproduced.

All of our line art templates are provided as PDFs. The included reference photos are JPGs. All files are best downloaded to a desktop computer.

You have lifetime access. Your content doesn't expire, so you can come back and revisit it anytime.

Probably not because there are no tutorials. Our templates are made for artists who already have some skills under their belt. If you’re a beginner, check out our beginner classes to get up to speed quickly!

No, it's a one-time purchase.

Yes, you can sell originals, prints, or other merchandise featuring the artwork you create from our templates.

Check your art show's rules, but most likely. The included reference photos are free to use and royalty-free with no attribution required. And even if you use our line drawing templates as the foundation of a piece, you are still making all the creative decisions about medium, colors, and values, and therefore creating "original art." You cannot, however, take the reference photos or line drawings as-is, and claim that you created them. If you have any additional questions, please email us and we'll be happy to help!

We believe anyone can be an artist... even if they never went to art school. The need to be creative is built right into our DNA, and sometimes it just takes the right medium and a little practice to light that creative fire!
