6. Draw the third section of road traversing the third hill. Again, outline the sides of the road using parallel curved lines.

This segment is far enough away, however, that you won't be drawing rectangles. Instead, draw a series of short lines down the center of the road.

Learn More About The Road Drawing

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Roads of various types have been around for millennia. The earliest man-made roads began as game trails - paths used by animals. People used and enlarged these, altering them to suit their needs.

In ancient times, the earliest known paved roads were created in Egypt. Later, Rome was famous for its roads. Some of these, nearly 2,000 years old, are still intact today.

The first lined roads were constructed in the United Kingdom in 1918. Today, these safety markings are common throughout the world.

Get ready to draw your own roads. And if you like the Looney Tunes, don't fall into the Road Runner's trap - painted lines that lead to the edge of the cliff!
