How to Draw a Peach Tree - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: First, draw the trunk. Draw two lines spaces a little far out from each other that curve toward the top. Leave two small gaps throughout your lines, one in the middle and one at the top. This is where you will draw your branches.
Step 2: Next, draw the roots of the tree. Draw a few medium sized wavy lines coming out of the bottom of the trunk.
Step 3: Then, draw the branches. From one of the gaps you left in the trunk, draw to slanted lines coming out of both sides. Repeat this around all of your gaps. Now draw a single slanted line with a “V” at the end, around the whole trunk.
Step 4: Now, draw the leaves around your branches. Outline your branches with small half ovals in a circular shape.
Step 5: Lastly, draw the fruits. Draw small circles spaced out through your leaves.
