FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
It takes time and practice to learn how to draw. Don't give up if your drawings do not turn out the way you wanted.  A real artist is harder on himself than anybody else. If you get frustrated with your art it shows you have talent but you just need to develop the craft of drawing and that means practice and more practice. So, draw every day to develop your skill. Come back often and try some other projects. I am always adding new ones and I am sure you will find some you like.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE WORKSHEET
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

PRINTABLE NOTES

Begin by drawing lightly so you can erase later on. 

Use a ruler or straight edge to draw the straight lines.

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

Use a guideline down the center to keep things even.

It is like a cylinder with a roof.
The top is shaped like a triangle, but the bottom of the triangle is curved down like a cylinder. There is a second curve going up for the far side of the roof. The sides are straight.

There are seven posts going up and down on the sides. At first, draw them as a single line when you get them in the right place draw over them as two parallel lines so they have thickness. The four near post go all the way from top to bottom the three far posts only go half-way down and are covered by the half wall.

Use two lines to divide the top triangle of the roof into three equal sections.

Draw lines for the side walls. The near side wall in front is straight across, but the ones on the sides tilt downward.

The tops of the post have a "Y" shape draw them as double lines but be careful to keep things even.

The side walls have slats going up and down take your time to draw them evenly and parallel.

The stone path leading up to the gazebo is curved to give the viewer a lead into the picture. The stones are smaller in the distance and larger up close. Draw them as ovals since the perspective distorts their roundness.

Add bushes in front and a row of bushes in the background. Draw the outline of trees in the distance.

Use dark areas to give interest.  Put shadows inside and on one side.
