How to Draw Vegetables


You're good at drawing pieces of fruit but you'd like to try drawing vegetables. You want to draw vegetables so they look realistic, using proper shapes and colors. It's not too hard; soon you will be drawing vegetables that look good enough to eat.

  • Draw the basic vegetable shapes to start your drawings. Draw a long triangle for a carrot. Use long thin triangles for large carrots and little triangles for baby carrots. Use little circles for peas and large circles for onions or potatoes.

  • Use long rectangles for zucchinis and heart shapes for turnips. Using these basic shapes will help you with the initial form of the vegetables you want to draw.

  • Add details to your vegetable shapes so they look more authentic. You can change the initial shapes by erasing edges and curving the lines. Make your onions less round and add lines through the lengths of the shape. Add a sprout on top to finish the look.

  • Round the edges of your rectangles to make them look like zucchinis. Make one end more narrow and add a stem.

  • Start with simple vegetables like squash and gourds because they come in different shapes and colors like orange, green and yellow.

  • Use proper colors, shading and texture to authenticate all of your drawings. Make eggplant purple, peas green, carrots orange, peppers green or red and mushrooms brown. Add stems, tops and skin to all your vegetables.

  • Consider the placement of the vegetables and how much of them you can see. You will only draw what you can see. Arrange the vegetables in the center of the page if you want to draw an up-close picture or off-center if you want an interesting effect.
