The Golden Gate Bridge is the pride of San Fransisco. Sketching it in all its glory adds a feather to your artistic cap. You would require your ruler to make the perfect lines.
Step 1: Draw a triangle with intersecting lines.
Step 2: Draw two vertical poles.
Step 3: Draw two similar but smaller poles.
Step 4: Join the bigger poles with lines.
Step 5: Form three diverging lines below.
Step 6: Sketch curvy structures below the poles.
Step 7: Form an undulating landscape in the background.
Step 8: Join the two poles on one side with a curved double line.
Step 9: Detail the top of the bigger tower.
Step 10: Detail the second rung from the top.
Step 11: Detail the 3rd rung.
Step 12: Complete with the 4th rung.
Step 13: Start joining the smaller poles with horizontal bars and darken the lines of step 5.
Step 14: Complete the previous step and make tiny L-shaped structures on deck.
Step 15: Draw double-lined triangular structures along the deck.
Step 16: Give shape to cuboidal figures on the deck.
Step 17: Make double lines hanging from the two towers on the outer sides.
Step 18: Sketch the main cables on the other side of the towers.
Step 19: Give shape to the vertical suspension cables on one side of the bridge.
Step 20: Sketch the ones on the other side of the bridge and signify the water below with dotted lines.
This activity suits older children who have a better understanding of shapes and complex structures. Adults can attempt it too. The beautiful bridge would look endearing on canvas when drawn carefully and correctly.
