2.Step-by-Step Guide to Drawing an Apple

Step 1: Draw two overlapping circles.

Start by drawing two circles that overlap a bit in the middle. These will be the main body of our apple. It’s okay if they’re not perfect circles- keep trying!

Step 2: Rough the Overlapped Edges

In this, we are outlining the boundary and erasing the inner lines as shown in the picture. This gives our apple a natural and realistic look, just like a real apple with its curves and bumps.

Step 3: Draw the Face of the Apple with Some Details

Inside the circle, draw two small circles for the eyes. Then, add a curved rounded shape like a little rectangle but with curved sides above each eye for the eyebrows. Below the eyes, draw a small curved line for the smiling mouth.

Above the face, draw a ‘V’ shape with a line extending from it. This represents the stalk of our apple, the part that connects it to the tree. Simple, right?

Step 4: Your Apple is Ready

Now, grab your trusty black sketch pen and outline the apple, just like in the picture. Your apple drawing is good to go! Ready to add some vibrant colors to bring it to life?

Final Touches 

Now comes the fun part! Use your crayons or colored pencils to color the apple red, the eyes with black dots, and the stalk brown. Get creative with the colors and make your apple uniquely yours!

Tips and Tricks to Draw an Apple

  • Draw leaves at the top of the apple to make it look more realistic. Use curved lines to create the shape of the leaves, and add veins for detail.
  • Additionally, your child can create a bitten apple by erasing a small portion of the apple’s edge and adding wavy lines to show where it was bitten.
  • Add a shadow underneath the apple to give it a three-dimensional appearance. Use light shading to create the shadow and blend it with the surface.
  • Experiment with different backgrounds. You can draw a basket of apples, a tree with apples hanging from it, or even a still-life arrangement with other fruits.
  • Include a tiny worm peeking out of the bitten part for a playful touch. Draw a small, wiggly line with a dot for the worm’s head to make it cute and fun.
  • Practice drawing apples of different sizes and colors to explore your artistic skills even more.


Drawing an apple may seem simple, but every stroke of your pencil teaches you something new. Did you find it tricky to get those overlapping circles just right? Or maybe adding the perfect smile to your apple’s face made you pause and think. That’s the beauty of art—every line drawn is a step in your artistic journey.
