How to Draw Breakfast Foods

Breakfast foods are often drawn to create a narrative with people in a piece of art. Breakfast food sketches can be incorporated in comic strips, canvas sketches, or even just in doodles on a scratch piece of paper. The best way to learn to draw breakfast foods is to use available clip art as a visual or tracing guide. You can look up any type of breakfast food you can imagine, and you can use it as a guide to create your very own breakfast food drawing.

  1. 1

    Use an photo or clip art as a guide to look at a variety of breakfast food drawings (see Resources). Pick out the foods you want to draw, and look for different types of images or photos that give you different focal points on the foods. Pick out a few food items to practice with, such as a fried egg and a piece of buttered toast.

  2. 2

    Draw breakfast foods by tracing them from images or photos, or by using the images and photos as a guide for a freehand sketch. Draw a fried egg by sketching an elongated and imperfect white circle, with a small and yellow circle in the centre to create an egg yolk. Draw a buttered piece of toast by sketching a brown rectangle with a small yellow square off-centre to create a small piece of butter.

  3. 3

    Fill in your sketches with any shading or colours that make them feel more realistic or true to the effect you want to create. Once you have practised with the two-dimensional guides, you can eventually try to sketch still life drawings using real breakfast foods.
