I invite all beginner artists to a new lesson in which I will show you how to draw roots. You can easily cope with this creative task.
If you want to learn how to draw individual parts of plants, then this lesson will be very useful for you, because now you will learn how to draw roots. The root is the underground part of plants, but in some plant species the root may be above the ground. Roots have similar functions, but different structures.
In the figure, you see a well-developed main root, from which lateral and adventitious roots emanate. The main root is wide and vertical, while the adventitious roots are thinner.
Freehand lines are allowed in this tutorial, so the shape and size of the roots in your drawing may differ from my example. The main thing is to remember the sequence of steps so that you can easily draw the roots of the plant if necessary.

Time needed: 30 minutes.
How to Draw Roots
- Draw the top of the root.
Depict two vertical uneven lines that are parallel.
- Add the upper lateral roots.
Continue the lines and add the long side root and two small roots at the top.
- Sketch out the bottom of the root.
Continue the line and draw the long, curved root that is vertical.
- Depict the lateral roots.
On the right side, add one long lateral root and two more small roots.
- Add roots to the bottom of the root system.
Repeat the previous step and add a few more roots of different shapes.
- Sketch out the roots to the sides.
On each side, add a few more small roots.
- Draw the rest of the roots.
Finally, add the smallest adventitious roots using short, curved lines.
- Detail the surface of the root.
Use short, thin strokes to detail the surface of the roots.
- Color the roots.
For coloring, use any shades of brown.
For your convenience, I have prepared a PDF file in advance, which contains a brief instruction and additional training materials needed to complete this lesson. Rather, download the file so that at any time you can return to the lesson and repeat it again.
