How to Draw A Pool

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


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

Step 1

We will go with a classic rectangular design for this tutorial on how to draw a pool. Therefore, the ruler will be a handy tool when you are drawing, as there will be a lot of straight lines.

Once you have the ruler ready, we can start drawing the rectangle outline. This tends to be a bit trickier than expected, as the lines are at a slight angle, as shown in our reference image.

Using it as a guide, carefully draw the rectangle. You can then finish using some curves for the top of the pool ladder.

The ladder will be simple for now, but we will add some details to it shortly! Then, once you’ve drawn these details, you’re ready to move on to step 2!

Step 2 – Next, draw some more contours of the pool

The second step of your pool drawing will be an easy one for you to take. For this step, we will draw the inner edge of the outline of the pool.

To do this, simply use your ruler to draw some more lines that run parallel to the outline you drew in the previous step.

This will result in a rectangle almost like a picture frame.

Be sure to leave some small gaps where the ladder will go in the next step, and you can use a reference image to show you where these should be.

Once you’re done sketching, move on to step 3!

Step 3 – Now draw the ladder for the pool

You started the ladder in the first step of this tutorial on how to draw a group, and now you can finish that aspect.

Using the lines you drew for the ladder, add some straight and curved lines to complete the outline as it appears in our reference.

Finally, you should attach the two steps to the frame of the ladder.

Step 4 – Next, drain the pool

Jumping into a pool without water is not going to be a fun experience! For that reason, we will add some to your pool drawing in this section.

First, draw a short line down from the top corner of the pool.

Once you’re done, we’ll add some wavy lines near the inner border of the pool.

These will only go over the sides of the pool and the reference image will show you where they should go for this perspective.

Then we only have a few final details to add in the next step before you color.

Step 5 – Now, complete your pool drawing

In this step of the tutorial on how to draw a pool, we will wrap up the final details. The main aspect that we will draw will be between the two outlines of the pool.

These lines will show that the outline of the pool has lots of small tiles that make up it. Once you have added all these lines, you are done with all the details!

However, you don’t need to proceed yet as you can add some details of your own that you may want.

You can draw some people swimming in it or even paint some big pool toys floating in it to create some color variation afterwards. Once you’ve mastered this drawing, you can also use what you’ve learned to create your own pool variations.

What final detail do you think you will use to complete this pool drawing?

Step 6 – Complete your pool drawing with some colors

This is the final step of your pool painting process and in this step you can add some amazing colors to complete your painting.

We used some grays, browns and of course some blues for the pool surroundings as well as the water. Here are some colors you can use for your own painting, but you should make sure to use whatever color you want for it!

Once you know what color you like, you can also decide on the different art mediums and tools you will use to perfect it.

For photos that involve water it can be great to use some watercolor paints for a softer look to the image, but you can also opt for some lighter colors with other mediums. . It’s up to you and we can’t wait to see what you decide to use for your own pictures!
