Draw together with Bruynzeel this fun cactus. With this step-by-step plan, everyone can draw a cactus.

All you need:

  • Bruynzeel Expression pencils in the following colours: light green colour, dark green, yellow, brown and red
  • White paper.

Step 1

Draw an arche with the light green pencil. Draw smaller arches on the large arch with the light green pencil. Now you have the shape of a cactus.

Colour the cactus softly with the light green pencil.

Step 1

Step 2

Draw the stripes of the cactus with the dark green pencil.
Advanced tip: for each arch make an imaginary line in the middle and bend the lines on the left side slightly to the left and the lines on the right side slightly to the right.

Draw spikes on the cactus using the dark green pencil. Draw them in different directions for a more real effect.

Step 2

Step 3

Draw a jar with the yellow colored pencil. First draw a square and then on top of it draw two opposite vertical lines upwards to the right. 

Draw a horizontal line between the two points. Use the brown pencil to create shadow on the jar by adding the colour brown to the horizontal lines. Do not do this on the lowest horizontal line.

Draw a flower with the red pencil. Great job, you finished your cactus!
