More food! Drawing food is a great way to practice your art skills and learning how to draw a blueberry is a fun project to try today.
If you have it around, you can draw it while looking at it, which is a great way to get things looking realistic.
I love that they have little crowns.
Have you ever REALLY looked at a blueberry before?
Today, let’s draw a blueberry!
Here are the supplies you’ll need to sketch and color your blueberry today:
- Crayons or colored pencils in shades of blue and a purple two
(This would also be good with watercolor paint too!)
Let’s get started:
First, let’s make sure our paper is landscape, that means sideways like a train.
Artist tip: point to the middle of your paper with your finger. This will tell your eyes how much space you have to draw in. It does not have to be exact!
1. First, towards the top of the page draw a flat-ish oval. Remember to draw light. That is the blueberry “crown”.
2. Second, draw a large circle. Have the oval inside the circle towards the top, but not touching it. Remember circles can be tricky, draw the lines a few times if you need to.
3. Next, draw small wide triangles all around the blueberry’s crown, and have them touch.
4. Color will really help it to look like a blueberry. But first a few things: I have pointed to where I want the lighter areas to be.
5. Add a background line, for depth.
6. The BEST step: COLOR!
You can add a background or more, maybe a whole fruit basket!
There you go! You’ve done it! A Blueberry!
Let’s see what other foods we can draw together…
