How to draw a white cabbage

Cabbage is as useful as carrots or cucumber. We see it most often in autumn when it’s harvest time.
You can draw a cabbage to entertain your child. Though it seems too difficult, it’s very easy to draw it and after one drawing lesson your child will be able to draw this vegetable on his or her own.

You need:
1

Basis

We start with the basis, with the circle. Draw the future cabbage big, use a compass to do this. Try to have enough space for the leaves on the sheet.

Division

Now divide the cabbage into two parts. Draw an uneven diagonal line. It can end above or below the center.

Adjusting the shape

From the line of division start drawing the shape of the vegetable. It mustn’t be smooth, cabbage is not perfectly round.Adjusting the shape
Do the same with the second part of the cabbage. Lines can bend and go beyond the circle but not over a long distance.Adjusting the shape

First layer

Start drawing the leaves around the cabbage. Draw them with the help of wavy and curved lines. Leaves can be not of the same size.

Correction
