click the image to enlargeDraw the stem by one single and weak pencil line. Remember how the stem is curved?
click the image to enlargeOutline the contours of leaves. Tulips usually have straight leaves but they tend to fold on the lower part of the stem.
click the image to enlargeBegin to work out the leaves so that they will start to look like real leaves.
click the image to enlargeDecide the thickness of the flower stem proportionally to the whole size of the flower. Not too thick and not too slim.
click the image to enlargeOutline the contours of tulip petals and you can erase unnecessary pencil lines.
click the image to enlargeNow you will need two color pencils.
click the image to enlargeUse the same two color pencils and fill up the green parts and the tulip head.
click the image to enlargeAdd darker red and pink color tone on the petals. Lower part of the head is slightly brighter (lighter) – almost white.
click the image to enlargeThe petals are now shining in bright red color ;-)
click the image to enlargeSince the upper two leaves are folded along the length, the inner parts become naturally darker – as if in a shade.
click the image to enlargeI think you now agree with me when I said, that tulip flowers are really easy to draw ;-)
click the image to enlargeLet’s polish your tulip flowers drawing skills further. Just observe and draw from the pictures without reading my comments.
click the image to enlargeOutline the stem, the tulip’s head and the leaves. Do it as quickly as you can using tilted pencil grip.
click the image to enlargeMark out the contours of the tulip’s petals. Shapes of tulip petals usually determine the image of the whole flower. Keep this in mind while you are drawing tulip flowers.
click the image to enlargeTake two color pencils:
click the image to enlargeErase the residual graphite pencil lines so that only green and pink colored pencil lines remain.
click the image to enlargeNow, just flat color both, green part and the pink part. No shading yet.
click the image to enlargeI always begin to draw the details from the flower’s head and, I also recommend you to do the same.
click the image to enlargeWhen the tulip’s head is finished begin to shade the leaves.
click the image to enlargeNotice, that the inner area where the leaf curls its edges around the stem is naturally darker, so make it look darker.
click the image to enlargeYou’ve finished both drawing exercises; you are now well equipped to be able to draw any kind of tulip flowers of your choice.
