Mushrooms are amazing living organisms that can vary greatly in shape, color, and taste. They grow in forests, fields, and even in the backyards of our homes. They are diverse and can be both edible and poisonous. In this easy drawing lesson, we will show you how to draw mushrooms step by step.
Due to the considerable number of poisonous mushrooms, it is important to be cautious. Therefore, it is very important to be able to distinguish safe mushrooms from dangerous ones. For this, one needs to have knowledge about the appearance, habitats, and other characteristics of mushrooms.
Among the edible mushrooms, popular types include porcini mushrooms, chanterelles, morel mushrooms, boletes, and many others. Mushrooms can be used to prepare a variety of dishes — from soups to appetizers and side dishes.
When drawing mushrooms, you can pay attention to their shape, texture, and color. Mushrooms can be large or small, with a cap or a spherical shape. Their colors can vary from white and yellow to red and brown.

How to Draw Mushrooms

Now draw two caps for two small mushrooms.
- Add details.
Add lines that will make the mushroom caps more voluminous.

Now, on the left side of the mushroom caps, add small round shapes. This will be the reflection of light on the surface of your cartoonish mushrooms.

Following the example from the step, draw stems for your three mushrooms. Use smooth lines as in the example.
