Heat is something that makes the human body feel relaxed, comfy and warm. Because the winter has left us all and Spring has arrived, I have decided to do a tutorial on how to draw a fireplace step by step. Fireplaces are sometimes beautiful structures that add design and warmth in houses. They are highly sought after especially when looking for a new home to buy or rent. They help heat homes as well as add relaxation and romance. Learning how to draw a fireplace is something that is really easy and simple to do. I drew out a simple lined fireplace that anybody can tackle with ease. People started using fireplaces during the 1700's when a man named Abraham Darby used a smelting technique which he proved to produce heat very efficiently. Even though the use of a fire burning hut was created, fireplaces didn't start taking off until the Victorian era. Did you know that Benjamin Franklin created the first free standing fireplace? It's true, Benjamin Franklin noticed that fireplaces lost a good amount of heat threw through the wall, so what he did was created and build a unit that he called a firebox known as the Franklin stove. Of course the stove wasn't flawless, the one problem that the Franklin stove had was letting air in, and letting smoke out. After some time a man by the name of David Rittenhouse used Franklin's creation and design but mad it so that the air was let in, and the smoke vented out through a chimney by building an “L” shaped stove pipe. The stove was a flabbergasted success and even though Mr. Rittenhouse made the fireplace successful, the name Franklin stove is what these units were labeled. This tutorial will show you how to draw a fireplace step by step with easy to follow steps and simple to read instructions. I hope you all have fun and remember, be creative by adding a plant or a table near your fireplace to add character. Peace out!

How to Draw a Fireplace

how to draw a fireplace step 1

STEP 1.

Start with a series of lines to form the frame for your new fireplace. Draw a small square box in the lower middle of your unit and then add three vertical lines and two horizontal lines.

STEP 2.

You will start drawing out the lining for the fireplace mantel as seen here. You can go with the same straight edge lining, or be a little creative and draw a fabulous molded trim design. Once the horizontal lines are drawn in for the mantel, you can draw a bigger square box around the smaller box you drew in step one.

As you can see you are almost done with this tutorial. What you will need to do now is draw out the rest of the detailing lines to add depth and simple style to the fireplace that you are learning how to draw. Once that is done add detailing lines inside of the fire pit as seen here and then move to the next step.

STEP 4.

To make the mantel look and feel like wood, you will sketch in a few scratch like looking lines on the top of the wooden mantel and along the sides. Draw a wood log with some easy looking flames spewing from it and then move to the final drawing step.

STEP 5.

Now that you are on your last drawing step, you will sketch in the columns on the sides of the fireplace. Next draw out each shape of each brick that is neatly laid around the fireplace as you see here. Detail the fire log and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your work.
