How to Draw a Pumpkin

Make a pumpkin drawing that is easy but still allows for some dimension. No need to draw ones that look totally flat.

Here students start with three round overlapping shapes, then add the inner lines. The different angles of each pumpkin make for a more interesting and shapely drawing.

1. Draw or print the center guide lines on the paper. Breaking the page into four sections helps to make a drawing that fills the paper.
2. Draw a large, medium and small pumpkin in pencil and shown in the tutorial.
3. Trace the drawing with a black pastel.
4. Color the pumpkins with an orange pastel. For more dimension, try using a golden yellow in the middle of the sections to look like a highlight.
