Artist tip: As with any drawing it’s important to recognize how much space you are working with.

To do this, point to the middle of your paper with your finger or pencil.

This will tell your eyes how much space you have to draw in.

It does not have to be exact!

2. Next, draw a half circle right next to the first circle.

It’s a little more than half, maybe a 3/4ths circle.

These are the Cherries.

5. Now to add the details:

  • At the base of the first cherry stem, draw a loop around the stem. Then work the circle line so it’s not completely perfect. Cherries have slight bumps.
  • On the second cherry, draw a circle around the stem.
  • At the top, where the stems meet with the leaves, smooth out those lines.
