    Step 1: Draw the Outline

    Start by drawing a vertical oval for the brim of the wine glass. This will be the top opening of the glass where the wine is poured. Make sure the line is smooth and curve it slightly inward on each side to give it a natural appearance.

    Next, draw two parallel lines descending from the bottom of the oval, curving them slightly inward as you approach the base of the glass. These lines will represent the stem of the wine glass. The length and curvature of these lines will determine the overall shape of your glass, so feel free to experiment to find a style you like.

    Finally, draw a horizontal oval at the base of the stem to complete the outline of the wine glass. This will be the foot of the glass, where it rests on the table or surface. Adjust the size and shape of the oval to match the design of your glass.

    Step 2: Add Wine and Details

    Inside the brim of the wine glass, draw a slightly smaller, curved line representing the wine's surface. Make sure this line is parallel to the top of the glass and has a gentle slope to indicate the wine's liquid nature.

    At this point, you can also add any additional details you want, such as etched designs, patterns, or even a label on the glass.

    Step 3: Create Shadows and Highlights

    To create a sense of depth and realism in your drawing, you'll need to add shadows and highlights. Using a slightly darker pencil or color, add shading along the sides of the glass and stem where light would naturally be blocked.

    Similarly, use a lighter color or a white pencil to add highlights to areas where light would hit the glass, such as along the brim, near the top of the stem, and on the foot of the glass.

    Step 4: Color the Wine (Optional)

    If you'd like to bring some life and realism to your drawing, use colored pencils or markers to color in the wine. Start by laying down a base color, then gradually add darker shades for depth and light shades for highlights.
