How to draw a simple flower – let’s get started!
Step 1- let’s begin with the outer edge
We will begin this easy tutorial with our first step and for that, we shall be drawing a large circle long and a little tilted just above the middle of the paper.
This will be the outer edge of the flower and will be taken as a guideline only. We will draw this part with a lighter stroke to erase it later.
Step 2- Draw some inner and outer edges
Now draw a curve inside the circle we just drew, at its bottom center. Afterward, draw a half circle below the initial circle starting from its middle left corner and extending to its middle right corner.
Again draw a small half circle thin and elongated right below the half circle we just drew.
Step 3- Next, draw the stem and the first petal base
Draw two elongated lines closer and parallel to each other for the creation of the stem.
Now add a curve slightly bent in the middle of the bigger half circle we just drew in our second step and the ends of the curve should be connecting with both the boundaries of the mentioned circle.
Remember that this curve has to be drawn with darker strokes.
Step 4- Adding the petals
Our next step is to add some petals and for that, we have brought you an easy peasy trick.
Now the trick is that we will divide the petal diagram into three curves i.e. two equal curves facing each other and one small curve connecting them at the top.
Repeat the process until all the petals will fall within the space of the larger guideline half circle. Make sure to outline the bottom line of the circle together with the petals as shown in the illustration.
Step 5- More petals
Let’s add more petals inside the circle we have drawn initially leaving the space of the curve formed inside it. Follow the same process for petals and every petal must be adjacent to each other.
It’s perfectly fine if your petal is crossing the boundary of the circle. Outline the curve drawn at the bottom-middle of the initial circle and start adding small circles inside it.
Step 6- Adding seeds to the flower disc and outline the stem
Fill up the middle curve with more tiny circles and outline the stem portion with darker strokes.
Step 7- leaf
Let’s begin with the leaf part. On the right side of the stem, draw a curve slightly bent downwards.
Leaving some distance from the stem, draw two half circles upside and downside of the curve connecting its end. This will look like a leaf. Inside the leaf, draw some lines adjacent to the curve forming the shape of V.
Step 8- Draw the second leaf and start coloring inside the petals
Repeat the same process for the leaf and draw the same on the left side of the stem. Also, draw some lines inside the petals drawn on the upper side of the middle curve.
This will create a forward-facing look. Clean up all the circles and curves that were used as a guideline.
Our drawing is incomplete without the colors so let’s get ready for filling some colors in it.
Let’s begin with the petals and start coloring them with your favorite pink shade.
Step 9- Finish off your drawing with some colors
Finish up your drawing by coloring the stem and the leaves with green shade and the petals with pink shade and fill in the middle portion with yellow shade.
Don’t forget to add some shades inside the petals with darker pink, it will create a more organic look.
