How To Draw Flowers Online

For The Absolute Beginner


How to draw flowers online and master the art is not at all difficult—once you know a few basics and use them as a guideline—then you can throw the guidebook in the trash can! Having mentioned that, there are no hard and fast rules in drawing or sketching, what is important is "Does the viewer like or dislike your drawing?" And the viewer of course can be you.

One of the first things to observe is this; all flowers and their petals emanate from a central point called the stem.

If you visualize a circle with a dot in the middle, the dot would be the end of the stem and from that point going outwards, if you draw five lines as shown in the image here, they would represent the petals. This would look a bit like a bike wheel but it is the basis of how to start drawing a flower in the simplest way.

Your viewpoint (from where you are now looking at the flower) is directly above into the center. If you move your viewpoint to the side, you'll notice there is now no circle but an oval shape. We won't go into the complexities of perspective here, let's leave that for another day, another page.

Please follow along with me to the next stage by drawing a line across your paper as in this diagram. Draw it in freehand with one movement with a single sweep of your hand and wrist.

The trick here is to keep your drawing simple, no fiddling with detail until you have got all your basic shapes in as shown here.

Now is the moment to draw in a few details, about two or three leaves then shape a few petals on top of your original drawing like this image below.

The leaves can be described as "lip shapes" so draw them in like moms lips.

There will be a more comprehensive tutorial on drawing flowers online on another page for intermediate artists.
