Here’s how to draw vegetables and include their root system at the same time. Make if fun by adding a worm or two and a butterfly!
Drawing diagrams for plants, especially root-based vegetables, needn’t be dull and boring. In fact, they can make quite a colorful and beautiful work of art. And who needs one more black and white sheet of plants to label?
This tutorial shows students how to draw some vegetables and add a few more details to make them just a bit more realistic. After all, some root-based plants have tall thin, brushy leaves, and some have short and wide leaves.
The same can be said for the roots. Even though the plant itself is a root, they sometimes have even smaller hair-like roots that are growing and supporting the plant system. Fortunately, if you just trace them with a good medium size tip marker, they will still show up really well after you color over them with a brown crayon. Let’s hear it for waxy crayons that are transparent too!
