How to draw a cement mixer

You will need a piece of paper a rubber a black pen and a pencil.

Now let’s draw a cement mixer truck. The trickiest part is the cement mixer itself on the back of the truck.

It looks a bit like a diamond or an ice-cream cone lying down.

Start with three circles joined together by a straight line. Draw a cab with a sloping bonnet. Then starting above the middle wheel draw an eight-sided shape as shown – the sides are all different lengths.

Use this picture to help you add some more details to our cement mixer then colour it in.

Now try a pencil sketch of a cement mixer.

Draw a rough outline of your cement mixer first. When you are shading take a break every now and then so you can study your picture to see which parts need more work.

Try drawing pencil lines in one direction first then in another direction for the next layer
