A swimming pool is a great addition to any home. It can provide hours of enjoyment for the whole family and is a great way to stay fit and healthy. If you’re thinking of adding a swimming pool to your home, there are a few things you need to know before you get started. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to draw a swimming pool, so you can get started on your project today.

What You Will Need

-Ruler or a straight edge to draw lines with

1.Start by drawing a rectangle in the middle of your paper. This will be the deep end of the pool.
2.Draw a line across the middle of the rectangle. This will be the waterline.
3.On one end of the rectangle, draw a semi-circle. This will be the shallow end of the pool.
4.Erase the lines inside the semi-circle so it is smooth.
5.On the other end of the rectangle, draw a curve that goes down and then back up again. This will be the diving board.
6.Erase any lines that are not part of the pool (such as where the lines intersected in the middle).
7.Add any final details such as shading or reflections in the water.

Step One – Sketching the Pool

The first step is to sketch out the pool. You can use a pencil or any other drawing utensil. For this example, we will use a pencil. Start by drawing a rectangle in the middle of your paper. This will be the main body of the pool. Then, draw two smaller rectangles on either side of the first rectangle. These will be the side pools. Finally, draw a third rectangle at the bottom of the page. This will be the bottom pool.

Now that you have all three rectangles drawn, it’s time to start adding some details. First, draw a line down the middle of each rectangle. This will be the dividing line between the two sides of each pool. Next, draw a few lines across each pool to create the appearance of water ripples. Finally, add some shading to give the pools dimension and realism. And that’s it! You’ve now drawn a swimming pool!

Step Two – Adding the Water

Draw a long, curved line at the bottom of the pool to indicate the water’s surface. Use a series of overlapping curved lines to give the water ripples. At the top of the pool, draw a few wavy lines to create gentle waves.

Step Three – Finishing the Details

Now you will finish the swimming pool by adding in the final details. Start by drawing a few ripples in the water with a light blue pencil. Then, add some chlorine tablets to the filter box (these are the white circles that you see in real swimming pools). Finally, add a couple of beach umbrellas and some lounge chairs around the pool for your guests to enjoy!


Now that you know the basics of how to draw a swimming pool, you can get creative and add your own unique touches. Remember to keep the basic shape in mind, and use light and dark pencil strokes to create depth and dimension. With a little practice, you’ll be able to draw a realistic swimming pool scene in no time!
