Drawings of flowers can be seen in Grandma's dresses, Aunt Mabel's table mats, on that birthday card you got—or your next door neighbors carpet runner in the hallway. You'll see flower sketches and drawings everywhere, signifying love, friendship, or being decorative to enhance your living room.

If you can draw your own flowers, it would make quite a difference to give your hand-drawn artwork a unique card to someone special saying happy birthday.

The basic shape for most flowers is a circle, every petal emanates from the stem and most are symmetrical but not exact like a snow flake.

The first step in drawing a basic flower shape is to be able to draw a circle with a dot in the middle to mark the center as shown in the left image below.

It matters not if your circle looks a bit wonky because these initial steps are only guidelines which will be erased later.

This third step draw in small 'S' shapes to create the petal shapes, then a small circle around the center dot like this—see image above on the right.

In the next step rub out all your guidelines and then draw two 10 or 15 degree lines which go from your flower center down to the right (which is the stem) as shown below. Then, in the next (middle image) sketch in two or more leaves and on to the final drawing put in smaller 'S' shapes between the main ones, and do a little shading to give a little depth to your drawing.
