Drawings of Flowers
for Beginners

In Easy Step-By-Step

There Are Millions of  
Drawings of Flowers Everywhere!

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 exactly 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 image below here. See the video--it's so much easier to explain!

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

But wait! There's more understanding in "how to " do it in the video clip.

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

In the next step, rub out all your guidelines AFTER you put them all in--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, draw in two or more leaves and then on to the final drawing put in smaller 'S' shapes between the main ones, and do a little shading which gives depth to your drawing.

Drawings of Flowers is Relatively Easy

Just follow along with me here or watch the video below. If you can draw a circle freehand (without a drawing compass) then it will be a breeze for you to draw these simple five-petal flowers! Do please email me if you get stuck and I can guide you individually.

Below are a few flower drawings which you can use as a guide. Please feel free to copy them and with a little practice you will become a master within a short time. Show off your flower drawings by uploading them on this site on your own page.
