So let’s start this lesson and find out how to draw a cheese!

Step 3

So it’s time to turn this geometric shape into a cheese drawing. To do this, start adding holes as shown in our example. The holes on the surface of the cheese drawing should be of different sizes and in no particular order. By the way, the holes are formed from cheese milk due to milk fermentation.
