FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Learning to draw takes time and practice. If your drawing does not turn out just the way you had hoped it would do not give up.  No one is as hard on themselves as a person who has the gift of art. The frustration shows you have the talent but skill is different and needs to be developed to reach the same level as the talent. So practice and draw every day. Come back to my blog often and try some of my other projects. I am always adding new ones and I am sure you will find some you like.

PRINTABLE NOTES
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later on. 

Use a ruler or straight edge to draw the straight lines. Trace around a coin or small jar lid to make the circles for the wheels.

Use shapes like rectangles, triangles, and squares to build the basic shape. 

The view is at a slight angle so the front and the side are both showing. To make the effect correct be sure to put the tires on the far side a little ahead of the ones on the near side. 

Use a guideline for the ground so the wheels are on the same plain and not one higher than the other. The guideline will be part of the shadow later on.

The front of the fire engine slopes down, make sure that both sides have parallel lines and slope the same on both sides.

Use dark areas to give interest. Like the wheels hoses and shadows.

The wheels on the far side are slightly in front of the wheels on the near side. Perspective makes them look just slightly higher than the ones on the nearer side.

Draw around the lines on the ladder so they look like thick strong steel. Every line should have a second so the ladder is made of pairs of lines.

Add knobs and dials on the side control panel. Use rectangles to draw the shapes of the cabinets on the side.

Leave a little light on the far wheels to set them apart from the wheels on the near side.

Put a shadow underneath.
