The goal is to arrive at a finished drawing of a lake House by completing one part at a time. The drawing will take 9 steps in total as we continue to draw each area which will get us closer to the finished drawing. The finished drawing will be shaded with color resulting in a drawing you will want to share with friends!
Time Needed: 30 minutes
Form The Walls
Draw two rectangles as shown to form the walls of the lakehouse.
Add The Roof
Add the roof by drawing a triangle on top of the front wall. Next, outline a slanted rectangle for the angled part of the roof.
Draw Windows And A Door
Let’s start by drawing the door of the lakehouse! On the front-facing wall, draw a vertical rectangle. Next, let’s draw squares on the side of the door as shown. Then, let’s draw a horizontal rectangle on the side-facing wall.
Draw Bushes And Trees
First, we’ll draw the bushes by forming bumpy rounded shapes. For the trees, we’ll start by drawing curved lines to form the trunk. Then, for the branches, we’ll be adding V-shaped lines between the top end of the trunks. To draw the leaves of the trees, form bumpy rounded shapes attached to the top of the trunks.
Draw a line curving upward connecting to the end of the bush to form the base. Then, draw some zigzag lines to add some grassy texture to the ground.
Draw The Lake
Start by drawing a long wavy horizontal line. Next, we add shorter wavy horizontal lines as shown in the illustration to draw the waves on the lake.
Add The Dock
To add the dock, we first start by drawing a flat rectangular box with a cylinder on each of the four corners. Then, we add curved lines at the bottom of the cylinders as shown.
Draw The Background
To draw the background, first form the mountains by drawing a large zigzag line. Then, draw a curvy pointed line behind as shown in the illustration. Finally, draw the clouds by forming bumpy rounded shapes.
Color The Lake House Drawing
Let’s finish the lake house drawing by first coloring the walls with a yellow crayon and the roof with an orange crayon. Let’s use a red crayon for the door and a purple crayon for the windows. Next, we’ll be coloring the lake with a blue crayon. Then, we’ll use a brown crayon to fill in the dock. After that, let’s color the grass, bushes and leaves of the trees with varying shades of green. Now, use a brown crayon to color the tree trunks. For the background, we’ll start by coloring the mountains a blueish green shade. For the sky, use a light blue crayon and for the clouds, use a white crayon.
