Tree house doodle

Doodle a tree of houses

This is literally a tree house doodle, here I’ve drawn a series of my row houses up the trunk of a tree.

One of the nice things about houses that are stacked on top of each other is that you get to draw fun accents like stairs and ladders – because the designs are fanciful they don’t actually have to be serious so you can drape your stairs in loops and waves and your houses don’t have to be engineered to actually sit where they are – just sketch your houses and wrap the tree around them. In my drawing you’ll see a set of windows inside the tree making this a tree house as well.

Drawing – Hill Houses

Doodling hill houses

Just one tiny, fanciful step beyond drawing row houses is stacking the houses up a hill. Drawing hill houses gives your doodles more dimension and opens up wonderful opportunities to add ladders and steps and antennae and lights. Stick to your basic house shape and add a few similar designs – keeping the overall style homogenous.

I love to add lights and ladders – it doesn’t matter that there are no doors to join them to – this is doodling at its most fun.
