The mill is one of the oldest types of structures. Her images are present on peaceful pastors, and on gloomy landscapes.

Van Gogh, Constable, Kincaid - these are just a few names of famous painters who loved to draw mills.

It is not so difficult for a novice artist to depict this structure, as there are few components at the mill.

You will need

  • - album sheet-
  • - a pencil-
  • - The eraser.



Pencil out the general shape of the mill. In the middle of the sheet, draw a narrow rectangle, located vertically. This will be the foundation of the mill, the future building. At the top of the rectangle, place a point through which you draw two straight lines that intersect each other at a right angle. So, draw the blades.


Draw the details of the mill building. Divide the rectangle into two parts: the upper one - of a small height and the lower one, which is slightly enlarged to the base. Cover the figure with a pointed roof - draw a triangle so that its edges slightly extend beyond the walls of the building.


At the bottom of the building draw an entrance to the Mill - Draw a small arch. Then, draw a small window at the top of the rectangle. Arrange it, slightly shifting away from the centerline. Over the entire area of ​​the bottom of the rectangle, lay bricks - draw small shapes resembling ovals. Note that you need to place them clearly on horizontal lines, simulating brickwork.


Draw the details of the blades of the mill. Point the attachment as a dark little circle, located in the middle of a slightly larger circle. Each of the four straight segments of the blades is represented in the form of two lines extended to their outer part and more narrowed to the point of intersection. Now between the boundaries of the blades, draw small transverse segments, as if to represent a ladder. Keep the same distance between the segments.


Draw Mill. Along the bottom of the bottom of the rectangleDraw a wide bar depicting the shaded area. In the same light color, paint each brick. The entrance and the window make it dark. The upper part of the building is painted in burgundy color, and on the dried paint go yellow, drawing strips - light flares. The roof is divided into three unequal parts. Color them with different shades to enhance the effect of playing light and shadow. Blades make monophonic.
