Hey, young artists! Get ready to add a healthy twist to your drawings as we learn how to draw broccoli. Follow my easy steps to capture the unique shape and texture of this nutritious vegetable.
Whether you’ve seen broccoli in your kitchen, at the grocery store, or in pictures, we’re going to bring its green goodness to life on paper. Grab your pencils, and let’s get started on this fun and veggie-filled drawing adventure together! 🥦🎨
How to Draw a Broccoli
Draw two curved lines that come together at the bottom, forming a shape similar to a vase. This will be the stalk of the broccoli.
At the top of the stalk, draw small, curved lines branching out. These will form the base from which the florets will grow
On one of the curved lines, draw a cloud-like shape. This will start to form the textured head of the broccoli.
Add more cloud-like shapes around the first one, making sure to vary the size and placement to make the broccoli look natural and organic.
Continue adding cloud-like shapes until the top of the broccoli is covered. The shapes should get smaller as they move away from the center to create a dome shape.
Draw two clouds as shown in the picture. Under that clouds add small curves and bumps to represent the individual buds of the florets.
Sketch more clouds as shown in the picture.
Draw additional clouds as depicted in the picture.
Add more clouds to give a realistic view of the broccoli.
Use shading to give depth to the florets and stalk, and color the broccoli with shades of green. Darker greens should be used in the shadowed areas underneath the florets, and lighter greens on top where the light hits.
