To draw an apple with coloured (colored) pencils is not as difficult as it might appear. This drawing tutorial covers everything you need to know from start to finish. This art tutorial on drawing with coloured pencils I explain how to draw an apple. We start by organising our pencils tonally and in colour, this makes the drawing easier of the apple much easier. Once the outline is drawn, I explain how to start applying the colour tonally to the apple, starting with the light tones.
It is also important to draw any lines to follow the shape of the apple to suggest its roundness. After applying the light and dark tones and blending the colours with a blender, I demonstrate how to create the shadows. Softening the edges of the shadows to make them appear more real is also covered. Finally, small details can be added to create the final drawing.

Want to be an Artist?
At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. Passion, having the creativity to experiment and make mistakes is far more important.
You will become an artist if …
You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Or tell you that your art work is not relevant or good enough – what do they know! Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to drawing that will inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision and hopefully, will help you become the artist you have always wanted to be. I sincerely hope so.
