This lesson I want to devote to drawing a road structure, and now you will learn how to draw a bridge step by step.

The bridge is the oldest engineering invention of mankind. Bridges are erected over some kind of obstacle, for example, across a body of water, a ravine, or a railway track. Bridges come in different shapes, sizes, and design features.

With the help of simple instructions you will draw a bridge which has a semicircular shape, there is a railing at the top of the bridge. This is the easiest way, thanks to which you will quickly draw a bridge and get a good result.

You can use the acquired skills in your next drawings when you want to depict any area. For example, you could depict a bridge over a river or a cityscape that would include a bridge.

To successfully complete the lesson, you will need your ability to draw smooth curved lines. Try to depict the bridge in such a way that both sides are symmetrical. Take your time and carefully follow all the lines.
