Still Life-Red and Yellow Peppers Drawing

Still Life-Red and Yellow Peppers Drawing

For a person that would like to draw, here are the instructions:

Canvas: 16”x 20” (is easier to draw in a big canvas)

  1. Divide your canvas in half, vertically and horizontally with a line. Blue lines 1 and 2 in sample.
  2. In the right side, draw a vertical line in the position where you want to place your yellow pepper, line 3. In the center of these 2 lines draw line 4.
  3. Draw an oval (line 5) for the structure of your yellow pepper attached to line 2 and 3. In the center and top of line 4 draw another small oval (line 6). From this oval start drawing the secondary folds of the structure formation of the pepper. Think about light and shade.
  4. Duplicate the same process for your left pepper.
