Step-by-Step Instructions

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist, drawing an apple is a great way to hone your skills. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the process of drawing an apple step-by-step. We’start with the basic outline of the apple, then add shading and highlights to give it some dimension. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll have a realistic-looking apple that you can use in your own drawings.

Draw a circle for the apple’s base

Start by drawing a simple circle. This will be the base of the apple, so make it as round as possible. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect — apples are imperfect fruits, after all! — but do your best to make it as even as possible.

Add the apple’s stem

Now let’s add the stem. Draw a curved line extending upward from the top of the apple. Next, add a spiral at the end of the stem for the leaves.

As you draw the stem, keep in mind that it should be thinner near the apple and thicker where it meets the leaves.

Draw the leaves

Begin by drawing two curved lines extending from the top of the apple. Next, add a third line connecting the first two. Then, enclose the shape by drawing a fourth line. Finally, connect the lines at the base of the apple using a curved line. Erase any lines within the leaf that are no longer needed.

Finish up the apple by adding shading and color

Assuming you want to finish the apple in color, there are a few things you can do to add shading and color. First, decide what colors you want to use. For this example, we’ll use red, green, and yellow.

To start, add a light layer of color all over the apple. For example, if you’re using red, start with a pink or light red. Once that’sdry, add a second layer of color, but concentrate it more in the areas that would naturally be darker on an apple. For example, the creases where the apple bends, or under the leaves.

Finally, once the second layer is dry, add a third layer of color concentrating it even more in the darker areas. You can also experiment with adding highlights by leaving some areas white or very light.

When you’re finished adding color, let the apple dry completely before moving on to the next step.


There are many different ways to draw an apple. You can use a variety of materials, including pencils, charcoal, pastels, and even paint. The most important thing is to have fun and experiment until find a method that works best for you.
