Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later. Draw the bowl first as an oval with a broad "U" shape below it. Draw the apples as three or four round shapes in the bowl, and one outside the bowl for interest. These circles do not need to be perfect in fact if they are lopsided or narrower at on end it will be more realistic.

The bowl has an inside and outside edge on the lip so draw a second oval line inside the first oval line this makes the bowl look it has thick.edges.

The apples have a stem that comes out of a dimple. Draw the stem with two lines starting a little below the top edge of the apple. The lines should curve slightly and end with a little circle that touches both lines. The apples have shiny areas so outline them before you start to do any shading.

Use shading to give the apples and the bowl their roundness.
