You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing four straight lines, joined together as if forming a pentagon with no base. Then draw a second set of four lines parallel to the first. Connect the outermost lines with short, straight lines. This forms the front edge of the barn roof.

Step 2

Enclose a parallelogram along one of the above segments using the three segments. This forms part of the roof.

Step 3

Use two lines to enclose a rectangle between the parallelogram and the bottom edge of the roof. Then draw another line parallel to the bottom edge of the roof to give it a three-dimensional shape.

Step 4

Use three straight lines to enclose a rectangle under one side of the roof. This forms the wide side of the barn.

Step 5

Use two straight lines connecting the side of the barn to the opposite edge of the roof, enclosing the front of the barn.

Step 6

Draw three rectangles of different sizes along the wide side of the barn. They will become the windows of the barn.

Step 7

Draw two parallel, straight, horizontal lines between the eaves of the roof. This indicates the bottom of the loft, or second floor of the warehouse. On these lines, draw a rectangle. Cut the rectangle into three using straight lines. In the left and right rectangles, draw more smaller rectangles, forming the shutters. Draw a horizontal line across the top of the central rectangle, forming a frame around the loft opening.

Step 8

Draw a large vertical rectangle across the front of the barn. Outline the top and sides with parallel lines, framing the door. Then, draw a set of parallel lines down the center of the rectangle, dividing the door into two halves.

Step 9

Add finishing touches to your barn. Draw parallel horizontal lines across the barn door, dividing it again. Then, use pairs of lines to draw an “X” through these lower doors and through the windows of the barn.

Step 10

Color your cartoon barn. Most barns are red, but some are black, green or other colors.

Do you know? Red is still the traditional color for barns to honor tradition. Before commercial paint was available, farmers sealed the barn wood with a mixture of orange linseed oil and rust remover, giving the mixture a red color. The oil protects the wood from weather and rust helping to prevent moss and fungus. When paint became available, many farmers stuck with this signature color.
