Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Pear and a Pear Coloring Page. It’s graceful shape has been so popular in still life paintings, over the years.
While many art teachers would recommend students look at a real pear to learn how to draw one, sometimes that’s just not possible. No need to skip the lesson though, as there’s still a lot to learn from a detailed tutorial. Looking closely at the shape of a pear, and then filling it with some layered color will always be good practice for those that want to improve their drawing kills.
Paul Cézanne, one of the great Post-Impressionist painters of the 19th century, is famous for his radiant landscapes, portraits, and still life paintings. In 1895, he had his first one-man show, which proved a revelation to a new generation of avant-garde artists and critics. Both Renoir and Degas were so enamored with his Three Pears painting that they were forced to draw straws to see who would buy it. See, there’s a art history added to your pear drawing lesson!
