Lesson 44 – Drawing and Painting
If you don’t have an apple at home, draw from this photograph.
With a sharp pencil, draw the outline of the apple. Don’t press down too hard with your pencil. An apple is shaped a little bit like a sphere. You should make your drawing about the same size as the real apple.
Next, draw the stem, if the apple you are drawing has one.
After that, draw the leaf, if the apple you are drawing has a leaf attached to the stem.
Next, look for lighter colors on your apple. Draw the outlines of the lighter colors. Be careful not to press down too hard with your pencil.
Look for darker colors on the apple. Draw outlines showing where the darker areas are.
Highlights are bright reflections on an object. If you can see any highlights on your apple, draw their outlines next.
