Learn More About The Cherries Drawing

Cherries are familiar fruits. The trees are native to the Northern Hemisphere, including North America, Europe, and Asia.

Especially in Asian countries such as Korea and Japan, cherry trees, called sakura, are lauded for their beautiful spring flowers.

People travel long distances to see these trees in bloom during March and April of each year. In Japan, families have picnics or parties called hanami beneath the blooming cherry trees.

The name "cherry" comes from the Latin cerasum, referring to a region in Greece where the tree first seen in Europe.

There are two main types of cherries - sweet and sour. Sweet cherries are often eaten fresh, but the tart sour cherries are sweetened and used in pies, sauces, pastries, and smoothies.

Duke cherries are a cross between the sweet and sour varieties. Ornamental cherry trees also exist that produce no edible fruit at all.

The cherry has been eaten since antiquity, and has probably found its way into our artwork for just as long. We see one example in the painting Cherry Time by Salvatore Postiglione.

From at least the sixteenth century onward, the cherry was used in art to represent sin. Today, the cherry is often featured in pop art, in jewelry and accessories, and on children's toys and school supplies.

Would you like to draw a bunch of fresh cherries? This simple, step-by-step drawing guide is here to help. All you will need is a pen, pencil, or marker and a sheet of paper.
