How to Draw A Peach – Let’s Get Started!
A peach is recognizable for its rounded shape with a sharp point, so we shall start that shape outline in this first step of our guide on how to draw a peach.
The sides of the peach will be very curved and rounded, almost as if you were starting to draw a circle. There will be that point that we mentioned before at the bottom, however.
Also, you should be sure to leave a tiny gap at the top of the peach, as this is where we shall be adding some leaves a little later.
Step 2 – Start drawing the divide of the peach
Peaches are not perfectly smooth orbs, and they have a small divide dip in them. You can draw that small dip in this step of your peach drawing.
It may be tempting to draw a line going all the way down the peach, but it will actually be broken up into several lines.
First, you can draw some small line detailing near the gap that you left at the top in the previous step.
Then, you can draw a curved line extending from just below that gap detailing until just halfway down the peach.
Then, leave another small space and then draw another line going down until the tip of the peach. That’s all there is to it for this step, and now you’re ready to move on!
Step 3 – Now, you can draw the stem and first leaf of your peach
In this part of our guide on how to draw a peach, you can add a stem and the first leaf to your drawing.
The stem will go at the very top of the peach, and is drawn using some fairly short, wavy lines. You can draw a small circle at the top of the stem to show where it was cut off.
Finally, the leaf will be on the left-hand side of the stem and will point out horizontally.
The leaf will have a fairly typical leaf shape that is wider and more rounded at the base but that gets thinner the further down it gets.
Step 4 – Draw another leaf for your peach drawing
You’ve already created one leaf for your peach drawing, so in this step you can draw the second one.
This leaf will be on the right-hand side and also extend out horizontally as the previous one did.
This leaf will look a bit different, however, it will be thinner against the peach and will also be drawn so that it is behind the stem.
This is because it is extending backward on the peach. With both leaves drawn, we can move on to some final details!
Step 5 – Add some final details to your peach drawing
We have just a few more details to add in this guide on how to draw a peach. This is also the step where you can add your own fun details!
First, draw a line along the center of each leaf for the central vein. Then, draw some more slightly curved lines coming off from the central vein for the smaller veins as shown in our reference image.
That finishes off the final details of your peach drawing! Before you move on, be sure to add any extra details that you would like.
You could add a worm burrowing into the peach for one idea, or you could draw it on a plate with some other fruits.
These are just two ideas out of many that you could do, so what kinds of details and background elements will you choose to finish off this peach for the final step?
Step 6 – Finish off your peach drawing with some color
That brings us to the final stage of your peach drawing, and now you get to kick back with some coloring fun!
We used some typical peach coloring of orange shades for the peach and green for the leaves in our reference image, so that gives you a guide if you want some more realistic colors.
You could also go more stylistic with the colors if you prefer, however! Coloring in any extra details or background elements can also be a great way to inject more color to the image!
You can also use some fun art mediums to give your image even more depth.
Painterly mediums such as watercolors and acrylic paints can work wonders for pictures like this, but anything you use will look amazing!
3 More tips to make your peach drawing easy!
Make this delicious peach drawing even better with these fun and easy tips.
The best way to make this peach sketch even easier would be to use a real peach to use as a model.
You can buy peaches cheaply at most supermarkets, and using one will help to make the details easier to draw.
Using a real peach will also help when you color in the peach that you’re drawing on. Having it physically there will also help you when creating realistic shading and smaller details.
Also, once you’re done you’ll have a real peach to snack on for an added advantage to this tip!
When working on any drawing, you can make it easier by looking at things from a different perspective. We mean that literally, and you can use that for this drawing of a peach.
For example, it would be simplified if you were to draw the peach from a top view. This could be done by drawing a circular shape with the stalk and leaf extending off.
If you were to try this tip, it would be made even easier if done in conjunction with the previous tip. Using a real peach will help you to really make this peach drawing easy to do!
What other angles could you use to draw this peach to make it easier and more fun?
If you still find yourself struggling with this peach drawing, you could make it easier by adding more to it. That may seem like a strange suggestion, but you can make it easier by making a scene.
For example, maybe you’re struggling with the shape of the base of the peach. If you added this peach to a still life, you could cover that part with some grapes or maybe an apple.
Basically, if there are other fruits you find easier to draw they can be used to obscure parts that you struggle with. You also have the added benefit of a more complete scene to show off to others!
