How to Draw A Window

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


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

Step 1

In the first step of the tutorial on how to draw a window, we will start with the windowsill. For this and most of the next steps, you will find it much easier if you have a ruler on hand to help you.

Currently, the windowsill will have three levels. The first one will be the longest and have a flat top. The middle one will be the thinnest of the three and will also be shorter than the first one.

In the end, the last part will be the shortest of them all, and it will also be the most angular of them all. With the finished windowsill, you’re ready to move on!

Step 2 – Draw the outline of the window

As you can see in the last image we are working on, this window drawing will depict an old style window with a stone frame.

We will start this stone frame in this step of the tutorial. It will form a long, rounded arch over the window, but we won’t use a solid line to draw it.

Instead, the line will be pretty jagged with lots of little squares coming off it. If that sounds a bit confusing, the reference image will guide you on how it should look!

Step 3 – Finishing the stone frame

In this tutorial on how to draw a window, we will complete the stone frame of the window that you started with in the previous step.

This step may require a bit of patience, but it will be worth it! All you need to do is draw the individual stone sections of the window frame.

There will be quite a few stones in this frame, but it will look great once they are in place!

Step 4 – Now, add some details to the window

Windows often have wooden or metal slats between the panes of glass. These are called muntins and we will draw them in this step of the tutorial on how to draw a window.

We mentioned earlier how you might want to have a ruler on hand for this tutorial, and this step will tell you why! All you need to do is draw a thin vertical bar going down the center of the window.

Then draw another similar thin bar horizontally near the top of the window. Then there are only some final details to add in the next step, and then you’ll be ready for some fun coloring games!

Step 5 – Add the final details to your window drawing

You are almost ready for the final step of this tutorial on how to draw a window, but first, we have a few details to add. These will mostly be separate panes of glass in the windows.

For the four boxes at the bottom of the window, you’ll draw some rectangular shapes inside the borders. The top cells will then be drawn with a combination of straight and rounded lines to fit inside the border.

That will wrap up the details in this guide, but that doesn’t mean you have to go on! You can also add some of your own details and elements that you might love and you can do a lot for this.

Perhaps you could paint the landscape this window is looking out into, or maybe draw some wallpaper and other home objects around it to show what type of home this window is in. What fun ideas can you come up with to complete your window painting?

Step 6 – Finish your window drawing with some colors

In the final step of your window drawing, you’ll have a little fun adding some awesome colors to it! In our reference image, we used some more muted brown and gray for the frame, then we contrasted it with some blue on the window.

These are the colors we chose, but this is your drawing and you should use any color you love for this image!

You can keep the colors more muted like our example, or use some lovely bright and vibrant colors instead if you prefer. You can also color in any of your own additional elements or details that you’ve added.

Finally, once you know what color you want, you can decide what artistic mediums you will use to complete it. We can’t wait to see the creative ways you choose to complete this picture.
