How to Draw Plumbing (drawing tips)

Step 1

Let’s take a look and see what that would look like. First, let’s draw the plunger. Begin by using straight lines to doodle the handle of the plunger. Notice the angle of the lines and how they come together to form the handle.


Step 2

Use arc shapes to draw the mouth of your plunger. Again, notice the angles we are working with in the example. To make things easy, remember to simplify your drawing into basic components. In this step, all we are doing is drawing various arc shapes.


Step 3

To the right of your plunger, use a combination of straight lines, curved lines, and an oval shape to draw your spanner. You can either start by drawing the handle of your spanner or, if you prefer, you can begin your doodle at the mouth of the spanner. Do whatever feels most natural for you.
