click the image to enlargeDecide the size of the flower first and draw an approximate circle. This circle is only a help guideline. Do it by very weak pencil lines.
click the image to enlargeAfter careful observation begin to sketch the petals. See enlarged picture in details how I did it. Only approximate and rough strokes.
click the image to enlargeComplete the sketch with all the petals. If you have difficulty to sketch exactly the same shapes do some sketch study on a separate paper.
click the image to enlargeSketch the leaves around. Mark out also the veins on the leaves for your later better orientation.
click the image to enlargeBy pink color pencil draw the contours of petals in one single line. Draw it over the initial graphite pencil lines.
click the image to enlargeErase all graphite pencil lines so that only pink colored petal contours and green leaves contours remain. Enlarge the picture to see what I mean.
click the image to enlargeVery gently begin to color the petals in pink. Very gently. Draw the strokes always along the petals, never across them.
click the image to enlargeLeave the center of the flower almost white because there you are going go draw the stigma of the flower surrounded by the crown of stamens.
click the image to enlargeFinish shading the petals. Notice that the edges are darker and some edges are slightly folded upward.

click the image to enlargeLets start to color the leaves. Prepare one light green and one dark green pencil. Color the first layer in light green.
click the image to enlargeContinue coloring all leaves in light green as the basic layer. Mark out the veins by stronger green pencil line with the same light green pencil.
click the image to enlargeOn the top of the leaves, slightly erase the area around veins so that it becomes brighter – as you see on the picture.
click the image to enlargeColor in green all the rest. Deeper places near water level are darker and the areas opened to the surface are naturally brighter.
