How to draw a windmill is a fun project that can add interest to any scene or stand by itself.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out the way you hoped do not give up. No one is as hard on themselves as a real artist. Draw every day and you will  become an artist. I have a lot of drawing worksheets in this blog come back every day and try another.

You can print this by highlighting it and sending it to your printer, or copy and paste to a word document. If the margins are off you can adjust them in your toolbar. Choose edge to edge printing on your printer drop down. If you have problems see the how to print tab above.

The basic shape is a cone with sloping sides. It has a rounded dome top, and a rectangle base. Use a guideline down the center to keep the slope even on both sides.

Draw a circle in the center of the dome top for the hub of the vanes. From the hub circle draw a large "X" for the vanes. The vanes are thin rectangles made up of smaller evenly spaced rectangles. Place 15 or 20 evenly spaced marks one each vane to help keep the ribs even. Once all are marked then carefully draw the ribs across the vanes. You have options since some windmills have pieces going back and forth for support some have cloth covering the vanes.

There is a support structure at the back going across the back and down. It is drawn as simple lines.

Add a window or two. The windows have little roofs over them and little shelves below.

Add a walk around deck with a railing before you do the wood siding or the stone base. The railing is a line going across with shorter lines going down.

The base is stone. Draw the stones randomly without trying to draw every single stone but give an impression. There is a door in the base; it is a double rectangle frame with two rectangles inside.

The wood siding is drawn as a texture, use short horizontal lines, keep them random so it will not be boring or predictable.

Add trees in the background and clouds in the sky.
