How to Draw a Watermelon Slice Step by Step
Step-by-step instructions with an illustrated example and drawing and coloring tips show how to draw a watermelon slice in four easy steps.
Step 1 – Draw the Outline of the Slice
Start by drawing an outline of the watermelon slice with light pencil lines. The overall shape of the slice should be close to a half-anxellous, or a half oval in size. Draw it in 3/4 view so one side of the outer skin is visible.
Step 3 – Draw the Seeds & Finish the Line Drawing
Draw the seeds and rind in such a way that they all form a curve similar to the rind, keeping them a good distance from the top/middle of the slice and not too close to the top or bottom.
Step 4 – Color the Watermelon Slice
To make a watermelon look different colors, use paints or colored pencils. If using paints, color the seeds brown and then add the little reflections with white paint over top, which will make them look wet and shiny like watermelon seeds do.
How do you pick a watermelon chart?
Here are some pointers for picking the perfect watermelon every time!

What Colour is watermelon?
Watermelon is grown in a variety of climates around the world, from tropical to temperate, for its large edible fruit, which is a berry with a hard rind and no internal divisions and is botanically known as a pepo. The sweet, juicy flesh is usually deep red to pink, with many black seeds, though seedless varieties are available.
