If your love for strawberries is as huge as mine and you want to learn how to draw a strawberry step by step, I’ve created a detailed guide that will show you everything from start to finish.
Strawberries are one of my most favorite fruits and just taking a small bite of that delicious sweetness makes a bad day feel so much better.
Besides how amazing some of them taste, strawberries are also incredibly pretty to look at and when you use them in an artwork, they can instantly make any piece or drawing look stunning.
They are the best thing to draw when you’re not sure what to draw.
One thing I can say is that after following this tutorial, you’ll definitely feel confident enough to draw more strawberries in the future and use them for whatever you wish.
I’m sure you’re excited to get started now so grab your pencil, and let’s begin.
Like always, let’s study our reference to get a better idea of how we should go about drawing a strawberry.
What we can take from this reference, is that the shape of the strawberry is more rounded at the top and becomes narrow towards the end.
It’s also slightly more curved in on the right hand side and the leaves on the top go in different directions.
Once we have put together the basic structure of the strawberry, we can then move on to adding details.
Steps For Drawing A Strawberry
To begin your strawberry drawing, start off by lightly sketching an oval like this. It sort of looks like an egg shape but when we add the next part to this drawing, we’re going to erase the top of this oval.
Go ahead and draw a curved line coming down on either side of the oval you had just drawn. As you reach the end, join those two lines by drawing another curved shape.
Remove the top of the oval as we had mentioned in the previous step and you should be left with something like this.
Now, this drawing is moving quite fast and all that we have to do now is add the leaves of the strawberry. You can do this by drawing a curved shape at the top of the strawberry.
You can go ahead and draw it as we have done here or you can draw it closer to how it is in the reference if you want a more detailed finish.
Once you have the two basic leaves down, it’s easier to fill in the rest of the leaves.
You’ll want to continue drawing these curved teardrop shapes and fill in any of the blank spaces with more leaves making some of them more angled at the tips to give the leaves more interest and to show the direction of their leaves.
The last thing you can do to complete this strawberry drawing is to draw the seeds. This can be done by drawing tiny circles all throughout the body of the strawberry.
And here is the final finish of this strawberry drawing which is colored in with a bright shade of red for the strawberry, two different shades of green for the leaves, and a light shade of yellow for the seeds.
You can follow along and shade your drawing as we have done or you could do so in any way you please.
Did you have fun learning how to draw this strawberry?
I’m sure you must have found it much easier to draw a strawberry now after breaking down its structure.
Once you have a good idea of where and how things should go, it becomes way easier to start a drawing.
You just need to figure out the overall shape and take things from there. However, what I found most enjoyable was the moment when you add color to your drawing.
It instantly brought out the drawing and made it look even more amazing.
If you want to draw more strawberries and add on to this drawing, then you can follow the same steps as we have done here but just change the position or angle of this strawberry and you’ll be pleased with the outcome.
