The team of presents you a new drawing instruction about food, and now we are going to draw a cheese. This drawing guide is quite simple, but in the end, we have to get a realistic piece of cheese. So let’s start this lesson and find out how to draw a cheese!


Step 1

We start sketching the cheese with a regular parallelogram – a quadrangular shape, the opposite sides of which are parallel in pairs. It will be one side of a piece of cheese. By the way, we recall that the first steps of the drawing should be performed using very light lines.

Step 2

At the upper part of the parallelogram of the cheese draw a triangle. The base of the triangle should be slightly rounded, as in our sample. As you can see, we formed the base of the cheese drawing with two simple geometric shapes.
