Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Lettuce
How to Draw a Great Looking Lettuce for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin your cartoon lettuce outline by drawing a long, curved line that becomes wavy on one end. Overlapping the tip of the first line, draw another wavy line. This is the top of the first lettuce leaf.

Color Your Lettuce Drawing
Color your head of lettuce. We've shaded ours green with lighter stems, as this is the most common type. But lettuce commonly has red or purplish tips to its leaves. Wilted lettuce may begin to appear yellow, pink, or brown.
