How to Draw a Pear Tree - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: First, draw the trunk. Draw a long straight line. Leave a wide space and draw another line that curves inward toward the top and back out.

Step 2: Next, draw the roots. At the end of both sides of your trunk, draw a diagonal line coming out. Now draw two upside down “V’s” inside of the two lines you just drew.

Step 3: Now, draw the branches. At the top of the right side of your trunk, draw a small skinny oval. At the top of this oval, draw a line that curves outward. At the end of that line, draw an obtuse “V” and connect a curved long “V” to that. Leave a little space and out line the curved long “V” and curved line going down. Do these steps to the left side of the trunk but leave out the small oval, instead just start the curved line from the top of the trunk.

Step 4: Now, draw the leaves. Outline the top of your branches with fat spikes that are upside down and connect all in a line. Continue drawing the fat spikes in a circle shape around the top of the branches.

Step 5: Lastly, draw the Pears. To draw a pear, draw an upside down half circle and half of a rectangle to close up the half circle. Continue drawing the pear fruit all throughout your leaves.
