Strawberries are red fruits that grow on certain Rosaceae plants. Strawberries typically have white flowers. Since ancient times, strawberries have been praised not only for their taste but also for their health benefits as well. Even bathing in them was once a popular practice!
Despite their numerous health benefits, strawberries are still popular in the modern world. Strawberries contain higher levels of vitamin C than oranges do.
Let’s draw the strawberry shown above using the steps in this section. If you want to get a closer look at each step, you can print this page or draw this flower freehand while looking at your computer screen.
Learn exactly what to draw in each step by following the red lines in the illustrations. Let’s start by showing a visual example of each step and then describe how to draw it.
The strawberry is outlined with a crooked C This is the outline for one side.
To enclose the figure, draw a second curved line opposite the first. You should outline your strawberry in the shape of a heart with shallow lobes.
From the top of the strawberry, draw two parallel curved lines. Using a small oval, enclose the line’s end. Make it look like a strawberry stem.
Invert the heart shape and draw a curved stem above it. The calyx is the green part at the top of the berry. Sepals, which are leaves like structures. Creating a second sepal, it is shaped like a teardrop.
You should erase the sepals’ guidelines.
Add sepals to the drawings. Curved lines should be added to each.
Sepals should erase guidelines.
To fill in bare spots, draw additional sepals. A line should be drawn between the veins on each sepal.
Indicate the seeds by drawing small ovals on the strawberry.
Put some color on your strawberry. There are both red and black strawberries, and most have green sepals and red or green seeds. The seeds of some strawberries are either pink or red.
The first step in drawing a strawberry is to outline its shape with a pencil. So that you can easily erase any mistakes when using a pencil, avoid pressing too hard on the pencil.
Then draw the strawberry’s sepals and the tip of the stem. A pair of curved/wavy lines is pretty much all you need to draw the sepals.
Add small shapes of seeds to the line drawing to complete it. Draw the seeds so that they seem to flow from the strawberry shape. The curves for the outer edge of the berry should be drawn at angles that approximate the outer curves of the berry. Toward the middle, draw the seeds vertically and the ones between just at a slight angle.
The seeds on the edges can also be made thinner, while those in the center can be made wider.
It will make the strawberry look more three-dimensional if we draw the seeds in this way.
Then, after the seeds are finished, you can trace over the entire design with a pen, marker, or heavy pencil.
You can also simply make the strawberries red, the petals green and the seeds lighter yellow for some basic color.
Draw a flat bottomed half heart.
Draw same another side. Don’t be concerned about the exact same thing on the other side.
Create a stem.
You can now add one petal to the leaf.
Another petal can be added.
One more petal should be drawn over the edge a bit.
Erase the lines in the petals once they are finished.
Spread out a lot of oval-shaped seeds evenly.
Use a marker and colors to trace.
Draw lightly three upward curved stems. A flower should be drawn in an oval at the top of each stem. Draw three curved downward stems.
For each strawberry, scratch out a rough heart shape. One strawberry should be large, and the other two should be small. Draw many leaf shapes around this grouping.
Each flower should be drawn as a five oval surrounded by a tiny circle. Using jagged lines, draw the leaves. You should draw smooth curves on the left and jagged lines on the right of the topmost leaf.
There is a smooth line at the bottom of the leaf that shows that the leaf faces to the right. Create a few short, curving lines for the leaves on the strawberry stems.
Draw gently curving lines to represent veins on each leaf. For larger veins, draw two lines. With a wavy line, give the petals a ruffled edge.
The center of the flowers should consist of tiny circles. The seeds should appear in tiny oval shapes all over the strawberry. Add more small oval shapes to the bottom of each strawberry.
Connect the seeds on the edges of the strawberries by drawing lines. If necessary, redo the stems.
On the veins of the leaves, shade them with many lines. Outline flowers’ centers with a couple of short lines.
With a short line around the edges, lightly shade the strawberries. Make a dark area under the stems of the plant.
Make the top of the strawberry by drawing an oval shape.
To form the bottom of the strawberry, draw a rectangle. As you create the new shape, ensure that its outline lines up with the outline of the oval. Avoid making the strawberry’s body too long. Just make it thick and short.
Simply sketch a couple of lines to represent the small leaves on top of this fruit. Later, you can add details.
Put the strawberry’s body together by combining the shapes. Ensure the fruit’s bottom is as accurate as possible.
It’s all good! Now let’s make your leaves look better. You can draw some leaves that have pointed ends, rounded ends, or straight ends.
Sketch strawberry achenes. Be careful not to overdo it! A few carefully positioned achenes will suffice.
Each achene should have a small shadow. This will give our illustration a sense of depth!
To finish, draw shadows on the strawberry’s body and on its leaves. Make the leaves appear shadowed as well.
Finish it off with some colors! On the right, you can see a white spot. The reflections add to the polish of the strawberry. Also, notice the dark shadow that surrounds each achene. It will give your artwork more realism.
The fruit strawberry has not only great taste but also surprising health benefits. Strawberries are the only fruits with outside seeds in the rose family.
The fleshy part of the strawberry you are eating is actually the stem, which is classified as an accessory fruit.
Strawberry’s only red, right? Think again! In addition to red, there are purple, blue, white, and black strawberries. There are even strawberries bigger than an apple.
The final example is very simple, but the effect that the seeds provide makes the strawberry.
