In this drawing, the buildings and the city street all seem to shrink and vanish as they draw closer to a single point on the horizon.
You will establish that point and intersecting guidelines before beginning your drawing.
You can see how to apply a one-point perspective from a different angle in this easy city drawing.
The step in which you would draw the point and lines is omitted, but you can see the perspective in how the lines of the crosswalk get smaller as they get farther away.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing an Easy City in One-Point Perspective
How to Draw a Great Looking Easy City in One-Point Perspective for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the easy city in one-point perspective outline by drawing a dot or point in the middle of your paper. From that point, extend six straight lines.
These lines should occupy roughly the lower left-hand corner of your page. You can use a ruler to make sure the lines are perfectly straight.
Extend most of the lines to the edge of the page. From the second and third lines, extend straight, horizontal lines. Draw straight, vertical lines between these lines and the one below them to create a brick pattern.

2. Erase part of the three lines on the left of the picture. Connect the ends of these lines with horizontal and diagonal lines.
Now, you can see the shape of a house with a fence around it. On the roof, use rectangles and triangles to draw a dormer window.
Then, extend four more straight lines from the central point, two on each side. Draw straight lines between them. From the uppermost line, extend a horizontal line.

3. Erase the lines between the vertical lines and the central point. Now, you can discern the shapes of buildings along the street.
Use straight lines to enclose rectangular prisms on top of and beside the existing buildings. Then, use a triangle and parallelogram to draw a triangular prism on top of one of the rectangular prisms.

4. Continue drawing buildings farther down the street. Draw rectangular prisms and irregular geometric shapes. On top of one of the buildings, draw parallel vertical lines.
Connect them at the top with a curved line, and band the shape with another curved line. Then, extend two short, closely spaced vertical lines above it. Then, draw a stack of overlapping ovals.

5. Use straight lines to enclose more geometric shapes and cubes in the distance. In the foreground, use a triangle and rectangle to enclose a prism alongside one of the buildings.
Below it, enclose pairs of parallel lines and connect each pair with a curved line.

6. Add details to your buildings. Draw an arched doorway on the front of the house and vertical lines along its fence.
Draw long, narrow, rectangular banks of windows on the building across the street, and band them with straight lines. Extend parallel, horizontal lines from the canopy to the street.

7. Draw arched windows on the house and band them with straight lines. Use curved lines to enclose a bush or tree at one end. Then, draw rectangular windows on the building.

Then, draw successively smaller rectangles down the center of the street.
