How to Draw a Great Looking Winter Scenery for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

How to Draw a Winter Scenery Step 01

1. Begin by sketching in the horizon line. Use short and long strokes, allowing the lines to overlap slightly. This will give the ground the uneven texture of snow drifts.

2. Draw a three dimensional house. Begin by drawing three straight, vertical lines. Then, connect the lines using straight lines, allowing the new lines to extend beyond the edges of the house. This will form the eaves of the roof. Draw a second set of straight lines parallel to the previous, and connect them using short, straight lines. Finally, use two straight lines to enclose the rectangular shape of the roof.

3. Add detail to the house. Draw two straight, parallel lines extending from the roof, and top it with a small rectangle to form the chimney. Draw a rectangle to form the door, then add an arch atop it using a curved line. Draw a short, vertical line through the arch. Then, draw a circle above the door and small squares along the walls to form windows. Draw a set of perpendicular lines across each window.

Detail the snowman - add small circles to his body to form buttons, dots for eyes, a curved line for a mouth, and a triangle ringed with curved lines to display his carrot nose. Use curved lines to add more drifting snow, and circles of various sizes to indicate falling snowflakes.

"Sleigh bells ring
Are you listening?
In the lane
Snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland."
- "Winter Wonderland," 1934

​Scenes of peaceful winter landscape, and the glimmer of new fallen snow, are a common theme in both the visual and literary arts.

In Lois Lowry's The Giver, just such a scene was the first memory given to young Jonas - and played a role in the book's final chapter.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

​In the famous poem by Robert Frost, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Everning," the scene is captured in these words:

"Whose woods these are I think I know... He will not see me stopping here to watch his woods fill up with snow...Between the woods and frozen lake, the darkest evening of the year."

​Would you like to draw a winter wonderland? Doing so is easier than ever with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing tutorial.
