Pumpkin Drawing Simple Step by Step

Let’s start with an Easy Pumpkin Line drawing first. Begin by drawing a long standing oval shape and then add two more partial oval shapes on either side. Continue to add more partial ovals on either side, but draw them slightly higher. Draw a stalk in the empty space and finish off your pumpkin by adding a stalk and vine!

1. Pumpkin Color Drawing

For a Color Pumpkin Drawing, choose two colors of markers- I’ve used an orange and brown here to illustrate the steps clearly. You can choose a orange and a slightly darker orange for a muted look. Start by drawing a wonky oval, and then add more ovals on either side. With your second color, come in between and add more ovals. Draw a stalk and finish off with a vine!

2. Fall Pumpkin Drawing

For a Fall Pumpkin Drawing, try varying the basic oval shape we draw and give it a little squareness. This creates a heirloom pumpkin look and you can draw a few berries and leaves to enhance that feel.

To draw a Pumpkin with Flowers, start with a large circle shape, add a face and mouth inside it. On top of the pumpkin, instead of a stalk draw whimsical leaves and flowers!
