Complete The Modern House Drawing
Let’s give the modern house drawing some personality by adding some color! Start by filling in the glass on the door and windows with a light blue crayon. Next, paint the walls with a muted blue tone. Now, color the roofs and the framing of the door and windows with a dark gray crayon. Then, use a brown crayon to shade the front steps and the door handle. Finally, fill in the garage door with a darker shade of blue.
