Drawing of Pumpkin Pie
This tutorial will show students how to draw pumpkin pie, make it look dimensional, and then add a pretty dollop of whipped cream on top. The side view reveals a peek at the inside filling, and is an easy way to make the pie look a little more dimensional too.
This drawing sample uses a different crayon to show the side shadows, but students could always use one crayon to make changes in the color value too. If students just use more pressure with their pie color crayon on the side, and a little lighter on the top, it will create its own shadow kind of look. It’s also a great example of using Value, which is one of the Elements of Art.
There aren’t many foods more symbolic of Thanksgiving than pumpkin pie, aside from the turkey of course. The built in fall colors make it one of the prettiest endings to a special holiday meal.
