Grapes are quite a versatile fruit, to say the least! They can be turned into jelly, be used as a flavoring for candy, be processed into juice and wine or simply enjoyed as is!
They have also been an important fixture in art dating back to ancient times.
It might be assumed that they would be easy to draw, but many have found that it can be more challenging learning how to draw grapes than expected.
Luckily, it’s a challenge until you have a guide to follow, and this is that guide!
We look forward to working on this step-by-step tutorial on how to draw grapes in 9 steps with you!
How to Draw Grapes – Let’s get Started!
In this first step of our guide on how to draw grapes, we will be drawing the leaf attached to the bunch of grapes.
The leaf will have pointy edges going around it, so you can use some jagged lines to draw the edge of the leaf.
For now, you will be drawing the one part poking out, as it will be one of three sections on the leaf. You’ll see what we mean when you refer to the reference image as you draw!
Step 2 – Next, finish off the leaf outline
We will be finishing off the leaf outline for this part of your grapes drawing.
As mentioned before, there will be three sections protruding off the leaf, and you will be drawing them using the same jagged line from before.
By the end of it you will end up with a leaf that looks almost a bit like a jagged maple leaf.
Step 3 – Now, draw the stalk and some of the vines
You have the outline of the leaf drawn, so now you can add some more elements in this step of our guide on how to draw grapes.
You can use some curved lines coming from the bottom of the leaf, and then use a thick line looping on itself for the vine coming off the grapes.
Step 4 – Next, draw some details for the leaf and the stem
There are a few details to add to the leaf and the stem in this part of your grapes drawing. First, you can draw some lines inside of the leaf for the veins inside it.
Then, you will be extending the stalk of the grapes with some more curved lines coming down.
Step 5 – Now, finish off the stalk
It’s almost time to start drawing the grapes themselves, but before you do there are just a few more details to add to the stalk in this step of our guide on how to draw grapes.
Simply use some smaller curved lines coming down from the stem to finish off the forked stalk of the grapes. That’s all there is to it for this step, and now you’re ready to draw some grapes!
Step 6 – Next, start drawing the grapes
We will finally be drawing some grapes for your picture now! You can start by drawing a simple circle at the bottom of the stalk for the first grape.
Then, for the other grapes you can draw some more circles, except they will have some gaps in them where other grapes will be overlapping with them.
For this step of your grape drawing, you only need to add four, only two of which will be full circles.
Step 7 – Next, draw some more grapes
You can continue to add some grapes in this step of our guide on how to draw grapes. Much like the previous steps, we will only be adding four in this part.
Only one will be a full circle this time, whereas the other three will have gaps or connect to the previous grapes. Once you have drawn these, you’re ready to add the final ones in the next step!
Step 8 – Next, draw the final grapes
It’s almost time to add some incredible colors to your grape drawing, but we have just a few more details to add first!
The main aspect of this step will be to draw the final four grapes. You can also fill in any leftover gaps in the previous grapes.
Once you have added these final grapes, you’re ready for the final step! Before you move on, you can also add in any extra details that you would like!
Perhaps you could make a cool background by drawing some vine patterns, or you could add some more of your favorite fruits to it! How will you finish off this grapes drawing before you color it in?
Step 9 – Now finish it off with some color
That brings you to the final step of this guide on how to draw grapes! Now that it is drawn, you can have some fun using your favorite colors to fill it in.
We used purple for the grapes and a nice bright green for the leaves, but this is just one of many color combinations that you could use.
You could also make the grapes green or even use some bright and vibrant colors for a more stylistic image. We can’t wait to see what colors and art mediums you use to bring this drawing to life!
