You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1 – Outline the shape of the bunch of grapes

Outline the basic shape of the vine by drawing a set of straight construction paths / lines to frame its overall shape.

Step 2 – Drawing Grapes

Now fill the bunch “frame” by drawing the individual shape of each grape. For this stage draw grapes that are virtually visible or help define the shape of the cluster.
The almost entirely visible bunches of grapes will be in the foreground and as the bunches curl around the grapes on either side will become increasingly hidden (overlapping by the front bunches). Be sure to take this into account when drawing.
Remember to draw grapes of slightly different sizes and shapes. In this example, most grapes are slightly oval in shape so they are also drawn at slightly different angles to look more natural.
When drawing the beam, leave a few small gaps so that the vine is not too dense. This will be used in the next step.

Step 3 – Drawing Grapes Background

Now draw some hints for the background grapes in the remaining small spaces between the foreground grapes in the previous step.

Step 4 – Draw the trunk

In the end draw the trunk that all these. Most of the stems will be hidden by the grapes, so you can paint again in the gaps where the grapes are less dense. Draw the stems behind the foreground grapes but on top of the background grapes. Delete any overlaps you need.
Once done, you will have a complete drawing of the bunch of grapes. You can leave your drawing there or if you want to go a little further, you can move on to the next step.

Step 5 – Outline the basic shape of the leaf

To make the bunch of grapes more interesting, you can add a pair of grape leaves behind it and a little bit on top.
Again use the straight construction lines to outline the rough outer shape of the grape leaves.
You can see the general shape of a grape in the illustration above if you need something for reference.

Step 6 – Draw the contour of the leaves

Now inside the straight-line framework, let’s draw the realistic organic shape of the leaves.

Step 7 – Draw the stalks

Clean the guides from the previous step and from each leaf towards the petiole toward the vine.
Please note that in this drawing technically only the left leaf grows out of the vine. The right leaf comes from another vine (not shown), so draw its petiole slightly past the vine from which the left leaf came from.

Step 8 – Draw the fringes

Now inside the shape of the leaf, draw branching veins in different directions.
You will notice that the leaves have some pointed sections on their edges. Each of these will usually have a vein going to its end, so draw accordingly.
