1. Start With the Horizon
Sketch a horizon line as the starting point. On the right side of the line, use a five-sided figure for the front wall of a house. Extend parallel lines backward from three points of the figure to form the side and roof. Attach a smaller boxlike shape to the side. In the foreground, outline a narrow postlike shape, using parallel lines. This forms the beginning of the water pump. Make the top of a wooden barrel with a large oval. Hang straight lines down from the ends of the oval.
