How To Draw Flowers

The theme of how to draw flowers is among the most popular themes in art? Did you noticed that?

There might be a variety of reasons but my guess is that flowers – whether live, photo, or painting hanged on the wall tend to soft the atmosphere around us. We feel better and peaceful with flowers.

  • Flowers speak and convey messages
  • Flowers are symbols
  • Flowers are peace


Flowers became so deeply incorporated into our daily lives that we often do not consciously noticing that.



Flowers became so deeply incorporated into our daily lives that we often do not consciously noticing that.
Flowers are everywhere, and that is good.

Just take look at your wall, or curtain, or carpet. What kind of motive or decoration does it have?

Your quest for how to draw and sketch flowers is just very natural.

In childhood, one of our first approaches in drawing was flower drawing. Do you remember that?

Flowers sometimes look complicated. But I can assure you that despite their seeming complexity; flowers are very easy objects to draw.

Because they allow you to make slight inaccuracies going unnoticed to a human eye. All plants are like that.

How To Draw Roses

I admit, roses are a bit more complicated to draw, especially if you have never draw flowers of any kind so far.

Believe me, after only a little practice you will be able to make your own rose drawings that will pleasantly surprise you.


…or Drawing A Carnation...

See this Carnation drawing for example. Where would you start to draw? Would you begin to draw from the top flower head or from the bud on the left side?

Point out those parts on the flower, which seem to you the most difficult or nearly “impossible” to draw….;-)

Is it the head of the flower?

If so, let’s take a closer look. 

It is sometimes very helpful to zoom up only “that impossible part” of the object and see it in detail.

You will soon find out that it is not so difficult as it looked like when you see the whole picture.

How About Drawing Tulip Flowers?

Tulip is one of the simplest flowers you can imagine and, no doubt that it is also one of the simplest flowers to draw.

It is almost impossible to make a mistake when you draw a tulip following my guide.

The point is that you start to draw now. It can be any flower you like. Begin with a simple sketch, then another one, etc.

The first results are not important now. Important thing is that you start to draw.

Print out these pictures and copy them, as you like. Get yourself a tracing (translucent) paper and copy-trace them.

Before you draw your own flower you have to copy several of them in order to understand and learn the shapes.

It is a quick process and one of the fastest ways on learn how to draw flowers.
