Olives are not only a tasty part of the diet of many people on earth, but olives are also a symbol of many things on our earth. For example, the olive branch has always been considered a symbol of peace, and the dove brought the olive branch to Noah after they were saved after the great flood. It has become a symbol of peace and prosperity.
Also, I think many people know that olives are not only eaten as a delicious delicacy, but they also make olive oil, popular all over the world. Olive oil is very healthy and even doctors and nutritionists recommend using it in the diet. Olives and olive oil are especially popular in Mediterranean countries such as Greece, Italy, and Spain. In these countries, practically nothing is prepared without olive oil; olive oil is used in fresh salads, meat, vegetables, and many other foods that are fried on it.

How to Draw an Olive
- Draw a little branch.
First, draw a branch for the olives to hang from.
- Draw the first olive.
Draw the first oval, which will be the first olive in your drawing.
- Draw a second olive.
Using the same principle, now draw a second olive, which is visually behind the first olive. The second olive is also visually slightly lower than the first.
- Draw the last olive.
In this step, start drawing the third final olive in your drawing.
- Draw detail.
For the detail and realism of the drawing, you will need to draw lines that will shine on the olives. Repeat this step from the example picture.
- Draw a structure for the stems.
Draw straight lines on which you will need to draw olive leaves in the next step.
- Depict the leaves of the olive tree.
Do you know what leaves look like on an olive tree? They are long and very narrow, just like in the seventh step of our step-by-step drawing tutorial! Draw the leaves to the end.
- Color in the olive branch.
Using your favorite coloring supplies, color the sketch you draw. You can experiment, draw the same drawing a second time, and color the olives in your second drawing green. After all, there are both black and green olives.
