If you are an artistic type who enjoys drawing and favours landscapes, consider drawing a winter scene. This is one of the most beautiful types of landscapes you can draw.

If you have moderate to good artistic skills, it should be fairly easy.

  1. 1

    Use a pencil with an eraser to draw some basic guidelines in a clean piece of sketchpad paper. Draw a curved, uneven line closest to the bottom of the paper that resembles a hilly area to represent the ground, and another similar line higher up. Draw a straight vertical line at either side of your paper with smaller lines branching out at angles at their tops. Finally, draw the basic triangular outline of a house in the distance.

  2. 2

    Draw a horizontal line that reaches the height of the house outline. This will be a guideline for evergreen trees in the distance in your winter scene.

  3. 3

    Fill in the details of the house and the two bare trees that are the closest items in your drawing. Draw a roof, door and some squares for windows in the house. Add some depth to the bare trees by filling out the trunk and the branches. Give the lowest guideline a few fluffy curves so that it resembles snow.

  4. 4

    Draw the outline of several trees all in a row behind the house. Use the topmost guideline as a guide for the height of the trees, keeping them fairly even. Create a pyramidal shape with the trees, making them resemble Christmas trees.

  5. 5

    Add in any additional details you want to your winter scene drawing. A small body of water, a fence, even a dog or other animal are good choices.

Tips and warnings

  • Use coloured pencils to give your winter scene a more realistic look.
