How to Draw an Easy Castle
- Picture the bottom of the castle.
You should draw three straight lines, placing one of them horizontally and two slightly oblique.
- Add the tops of the walls.
On the right and left sides add identical figures, using straight horizontal and vertical lines.
- Draw the wall outline in the center.
Between the two previously drawn figures add a few straight horizontal and vertical lines.
- Add the roof in the middle of the castle.
Above the previously drawn straight lines draw a triangle.
- Depict the door.
To draw this detail, you have to draw an arch and a straight vertical line in the middle of it.
- Add the windows.
Draw one window as a rectangle, and the second window with an arch and a straight line.
- Draw two more windows.
On the towers on the right and left sides, draw the same windows using arches and straight lines.
- Add the decorative elements.
On the windows and the door add lines and draw a flag at the top of the castle’s central tower.
- Color the drawing.
Use gray, blue, yellow, red, and brown to color the castle you drew.
You can draw this castle as a separate drawing or as an addition to any landscape.
