One of the main categories of drawing tutorials I like to share with beginners is that of fruits and vegetables. They’re relatively easy to draw and can teach you some valuable lessons that will make you a better sketch artist. In today’s article, I want to share my 5 step guide on how to draw a pear.
What I like about this drawing, in particular, is that it will only take about a minute to complete. It’s that simple and you can color it in to look fairly cute and accurate.
There aren’t any jagged or cornered lines other than the stem.
Ideally, anyone of any age group can learn how to draw a pear if they follow this guide.
Be that as it may, I think we should jump straight into this pear drawing.
For this tutorial on how to draw a pear, we’ll use this image as our reference. When you don’t have much experience, it’s valuable to analyze and refer to an image of your subject or the subject itself.
If you have a pear at home, grab it and use that as your reference.
It doesn’t matter if you lay it down on it’s side or upright like in this image, the end result of your drawing will still be accurate if you follow the steps below.
Steps For Drawing A Pear
We’ll start this pear drawing with the stem since that can be our guiding point. Whichever direction your stem is facing, draw two rounded parallel lines that are not more than 1 cm apart.
We want this to be thin because most stems are.
If you spread them too far apart, your pear will look weird with inaccurate proportions.
Draw two slightly curved lines on either side of your stem. Both of these lines must slightly curve outwards. At the top of your step, add another small curved line that faces the other.
This will create a 3D like element to your drawing.
In this step, we’ll start drawing the flesh of our fruit.
As you can tell, these are two lines that extend out of your stem and are quite flexible.
It will start narrow but begin to broaden as each line extends out.
Continue extending your line outwardly until they are about 5-8 cm apart from each other. By this point, you should have what looks like a mountain or cone shape.
To complete your pear drawing, simply draw a rounded line that connects to both lines.
There you have it! A pear drawing that took you under a minute or two to draw. How cool is that?
You can quickly color this in using lime green or dirty yellow for the fruit itself. The stem can be a light brown or light green, depending on what you prefer.
I hope that you enjoyed learning how to draw a pear. I know that it’s fairly easy but it doesn’t make it less valuable than other drawings.
As a beginner, it’s pivotal that you draw as many things as you can.
This will improve your skill level over time, even if you’re starting with basic tutorials.
