The blackcurrant, also known as cassis, is a deciduous shrub of the Grossulariaceae family that is planted for its tasty berries. It is found in a temperate region of central and northern Europe, as well as northern Asia, where it likes moist fertile soil. Both commercially and domestically, it is widely grown.
Did you learn some interesting facts about blackcurrant? Now it’s time for you to showcase your talent by drawing this blackcurrant
Step 1: Draw the Stem
Begin your blackcurrant by drawing the stem. To do this, in the upper portion of your paper, draw a not-so-perfect slanting line. The size of the stem will be up to you but make sure that the size of the stem will hold all the berries.
Step 2: Add Lines
In continuation with the first step, draw another slanting line beside it. Make sure that the size of these two slanting lines is the same. Then enclose both sides with a short, curved line. Then draw another curved line from the top going downward.
Step 3: Add more Stem
If you try to observe, berries are so many in every plant. Now, let’s draw more stems to our drawing to make more berries later. Draw a curve line but make sure that the distance between those curved lines is observed. Because later on, we add fruits or berries to each stem.
Step 4: Add short stem
Let’s add a short stem to our drawing this stem will hold the berries. Draw a short stem on both sides of the long stem that you made earlier. Again, observe distance in putting the short stem for the berries later.
Step 5: Add Blackcurrant
Now, in every stem that you made earlier, on the tip of each stem draw a not-so-big circle. You can use an object to trace a perfect circle for your berries. Make sure that all berries will not overlap with other fruit.
Step 6: Add more Blackcurrant
As I said earlier, a blackcurrant is a group fruit in one plant. To make it more real draw more fruit in the stem. Draw a stem then add fruit on the tip of it. This time, the other fruit will overlap with the other fruit. Be sure that your drawing is still good to look at.
Step 7: Erase Extra Lines
Now that we are done adding all the blackcurrant let’s erase some lines that make your drawing untidy. Erase all the lines inside each circle. Make sure that the fruits are still connected after you erase some lines in your drawing.
Step 8: Add Leaf
Plant or fruits are empty without leaves. In this step, we will add leaves to your drawing on the upper portion of the big stem, draw a short slanting line, then from the tip of that line, in the opposite direction, draw a curve line going upward. Then this two-curve line will meet at the center.
Step 9: Add more Leaves
I think your drawing is still empty, let’s add two leaves side the first leaf that you’ve drawn earlier. In the same process, draw two curve lines then will meet in the center. Do it again on the other side. These two leaves will slightly overlap with the first leaf.
Step 10: Erase Extra Lines
This step is very easy, all you must do is erase lines that are not included in your drawing. Now to see the beauty of your leaf erase the lines inside the leaf. Now your leaf looks like the leaves in Canada.
Step 11: Add details
We are done forming the leaf of the blackcurrant, this time let’s add details to your leaf. Inside the leaf draw three lines. One the middle and the two lines the side. Again, sure that it is still good to look at.
Step 12: Add Details
Let’s add details to the fruit by drawing inside each fruit. Draw a small circle inside each fruit. Then add a short curve line on the bottom part of each fruit. Make sure that your drawing is still good to look at after adding details to the fruit.
Step 13: Add more Details
Are you familiar with half-moon? If yes, then this step is very easy for you. On the bottom part of the fruit draw a very thin half-moon shape in each fruit. This will make your drawing more attractive and more real.
Step 14. Finish up!
Are you excited to color your blackcurrant? If yes, then let’s get started, Color your fruit according to its color. Make sure to color it properly. Then after that show it to your family and friends. You did a great job, kiddo.
