How to draw the attractive sketch fruit basket for beginners guide in 8 step:

Sure, I’d be happy to guide you through drawing a detailed sketch of an attractive fruit  basket! Here are the steps. Follow these steps and make your sketch of fruit basket.

A fruit basket  might seem like a simple thing to sketch, but it teaches you a variety of useful drawing skills. You’ll work on view and depth when you sketch the basket. If you draw real fruit, you’ll also get practice with creating a still life. To make your fruit basket  more realistic, work on shading and hatching so your fruit appears 3-dimensional. Play around with the composition until you’re happy with the results.


You need some tools for sketching. Collect these tools and make your work easy.

  • Sketch pencil
  • Eraser
  • Sketch book

Sketch the fruit basket:

Sketch the fruit basket divide in two parts, basket and fruit.

  • Draw a horizontal oval that’s as long as you want the basket to be. Use a pencil and lightly sketch the oval so you can go back and erase lines as needed. This oval will be the top rim of the basket so make it wide enough for the fruit to fit inside.Keep in mind that you won’t see all of the oval once you fill your basket with fruit.
  • Make a thick crescent shape extending from the bottom of the oval. To sketch the basket, draw a large curve from 1 end of the oval down and back up to the other end. The bottom line of the oval will make your basket shape look like a thick crescent.
  • Create a small ring at the bottom of the basket to make a base. Although most baskets don’t have bases, you can draw a narrow ring at the bottom to give your basket something to balance on.To give your basket edge a woven look, make the ring for the base extend along the length of the basket.
  • Draw a parallel oval around the rim to give the basket dimension. Sketch your surrounding oval so it’s slightly larger than the first oval you drew. Make the larger oval slightly narrower on the side of the basket that will be farther away from you.The distance between the 2 ovals will depend on the size of your drawing. For example, your ovals might only be about 1⁄4 inch (0.64 cm) apart.
  • Sketch 2 arcs that stretch across the basket to make a handle. Draw 1 curved line from the middle of the oval up and down to the opposite side of the oval. Then, make another curve that’s parallel. Make the distance between them as wide as you’d like the handle to be.If you don’t want your basket to have a handle, you can skip this step.
  • Add dashed lines to give your basket a woven appearance. You can make your basket weaving as simple or complex as you like. Start by drawing lines that curve from the top left down to the bottom right of the basket. Keep making the lines about 12 inch (1.3 cm) apart, for instance. Then, repeat this but make the curves go from the top right down to the bottom left.[6]
  • If you don’t want to make the basket look woven, use a pencil and blending stump to shade the bottom and 1 side of the basket.
  • A blending stump is very helpful when you draw with a pencil or coloured pencil.
  • Instead of blending the colours with your fingers, you can blend them with a blending stump.[7]
  • You can use a gentle circular motion, or apply gentle pressure and move it left and right or up and down to blend.[8]
  • Refer to a real basket or photograph of a fruit basket in order to get ideas for the basket weave or style.

Sketch the fruit:

Draw the part 2 of the sketch.

  • Draw half-circles inside the middle of the basket to make apples. Decide how many apples you’d like to place in your basket and sketch a half-circle for each apple near 1 end of the basket. Give each half-circle a slight dip near the stem so your apple isn’t perfectly round. Go back and draw a small stem poking out of the top of each apple.Draw the apples so they overlap a little and keep in mind that apples near the front of your basket will appear larger than ones that are tucked in the back.
  • Make circular oranges with small flower stalks next to the apples. Sketch at least 1 or 2 circles or half-circles for the oranges. If you like, draw a very small circle on each orange and shade it in darker so it looks like the orange’s flower stalk.If your oranges are tucked into the basket, make the upper half that are closer to larger than the ones near the back of the basket. If your oranges are placed on top of other fruits, make them completely round.
  • Sketch at least 1 to 2 bananas off to the side in the fruit basket. Draw a long curve that looks like a smile and make a parallel curved line about 1 inch (2.5 cm) above it. Connect the ends of the curves to make the stem and tip of the banana. To create a cluster of bananas, draw another curved line so it’s parallel to the top line. Then, draw a small square at 1 end in order to make the stems.If you’d rather put the bananas in the middle of the basket, draw a cluster of them in the centre. Remember that a cluster of 4 or 5 bananas are attached by the stem.
  • Draw small circles that are clustered together to form a bunch of grapes. Give your basket of fruit an interesting dimension by draping the grapes from inside the basket over the side. Draw the grapes so they’re small and coin-sized compared to the larger oranges and apples in your basket. If it helps, lightly draw the outline of the cluster so you know the overall shape of the grapes. Then, fill in the outline with lots of small circles.
  • Sketch a whole pineapple for an exotic fruit basket. To fill a large space in the basket, draw a large oval for the main part of the pineapple. Then, draw spiked leaves that are pointing up and away from the centre of the basket.To add detail to the pineapple, make cross hatches with a small dot in the centre of each space
  • Use a blending stump to shade the fruit basket and give it dimension. If you’d like the fruit to look realistic, take a blending stump and gently rub it over the fruit to blur your pencil marks. Think about how a light source hits your fruit basket so you know where to place shadows and highlights. To create shadows, sketch over the fruit again to add extra graphite. Then, smudge the graphite with the blending stump to make a shadow effect.
  • For example, if the light is coming from the left of the basket, draw the shadows on the right.
  • You can lift graphite from the paper by rubbing a clean blending stump over the graphite. This is useful if you’d like to highlight a spot on a piece of fruit.
  • Erase unnecessary lines and colour the sketch of fruit basket if you like. Go back over your drawing and look for lines that overlap onto pieces of fruit basket. Use a small eraser to remove these and then decide if you’d like your drawing to be colourful. Try using coloured pencils, markers, or pastels to make your fruit basket vibrant.
