Hi, I'm Al Krakosky, and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw lettuce. For this, we're going to start off by drawing a circle. You're going to draw a light circle. In order to keep it light, we're going to change the shape of it as we go. You get a light pencil, and lightly draw a circle on your paper. Looks like that - that'll do. On the bottom here, we'll darken this curve a little bit. Same thing over here. Then, we'll curve outward, create a base for the bottom of the lettuce head - the head of lettuce - just like that. And, we'll start back up here, make some jagged random curvy lines for the leaves. They're not all going to look the same, so they can be random. And, the top, on this curve, we're going to add some lumps, some curved lines, all the way across. Then, we'll add another layer of jagged lines on top here. Look at that. On the bottom here, we're going to follow this curve from the center, up. We draw a few curved lines. Want to do the same thing on the leaves, curving up the center on top. And, some more random lines in the inside to separate some of the leaves. And, we can add a little bit of shading on the bottom here, maybe a little bit on the top over here. And, there you have it. This is a head of lettuce, and that is how you draw it. Thank you for watching, and keep on drawing.
