The shape of the tower
It looks like a cone. Draw it using the oblique lines.
Since the mill is a round tower, draw a semicircular lower line.
The tower narrows to the top. Draw its form by using a semicircular line.
We’ll get a cylinder cut at the top. Add the dome-shaped roof at the top.
The “classic” windmill had, as a rule, 4 elongated quadrangular wings. There were 2 wings on one axis.
They looked like a grid which helped to direct the wind energy.
Use the same technique to draw another 2 wings.
Erase all unnecessary details. Draw the necessary details.
The front door is in the form of an arch. It’s in the center.
Through it, you can clearly see the back wall of the tower. Add a line to make it look realistic.
If you draw it together with a child, we recommend you to color it with bright colors.
