how to draw a mushroom step by step

To draw this colorful Mushroom, I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens

  1. With the Dual Brush Pen 910, draw the stalk/ stump for the mushroom first. 
  2. With Dual Brush Pen 912, draw the underside of the mushroom in
  3. Draw circle outlines with the Dual Brush Pen 845 and then color them on the top of the mushroom. I love how this red color looks!
  4. Finally, add a few springs of grass with the Dual Brush Pen 177
  5. With the MONO Drawing Pen, draw thin radiating lines to finish off the mushroom!

Why Should you Draw Mushrooms?

With autumn in the air, I tried to reflect the season in my sketchbook by drawing something so quintessentially fall. The red color pops off the page and the basic mushroom shape is not that difficult to draw at all.

My Mushroom Drawings were not only easy but very satisfying too. I’ve loved adding these mushrooms to my journal spreads and sketchbooks to create something botanical or autumn themed.

So pull out your markers or gouache and follow along with this Mushroom Drawing Easy tutorial friends. Or simply sketch the mushrooms with a pencil or pen. All of the options are great! I can’t wait to see what you will be creating.

Mushrooms come in so many different colors and shapes, I can’t wait to explore and draw more!
