So for this competition I would like you draw a still life picture of fruit. You know you should be eating your 5 a day right? Well before you do, I want you to draw them!
Check out the video about French artist Paul Cezanne who was really good at drawing and painting fruit. I’ve also added a few tutorials on YouTube to help you.
You can draw just one fruit or a whole bowl, and entries can be pencil or biro sketches, or full colour, or collage. It’s up to you. Don’t forget to look carefully at some fruit before you start, or preferably while you are drawing. Notice where there is more light and add some shading or shadow to the darker areas.
I’ve added some photos below for inspiration. Then closing date for this competition is 19th February.
Please send photos of you finished pictures to me at
I can’t wait to see your work and of course there are prizes to be won! Good luck!
