Four Ways to Draw Flowers

Flowers are fun to draw. They add an extra element of "pretty" to your lettering. And surprisingly, they're pretty easy! You just need to know the basic steps to create a particular flower, and you'll be drawing them in no time. 

Below are the steps to draw an Open Rose, Spiral Rose, Tulip, and Daisy. And even better - I created a free worksheet download so you can print and try them yourself!


Open Rose 

1. Start with a small triangle.

2. Draw a spiral.

3. Draw three petals around the spiral. They can be overlapping slightly if you wish.

4. Add another layer of petals around the first layer. Overlap them, and don't worry about them looking symmetric.

5. Once your flower is full enough, start adding a leaf

6. Finish off the leaf shape.

6. Draw another leaf.

7. Finish the open rose with lines down the center of the leaf.

 

 

Spiral Rose  

 1. Start with a triangle 

 2. Add a spiral around the triangle.

3. Draw an almond shaped leaf attached to the spiral.

4. Add another leaf right beside the first one.

5. Draw line details inside the leaves to finish.

 

 

Tulip

1. Draw a half-oval.

2. Finish the oval with a line connecting the top and bottom. Note that you want the top to have a point and the bottom to be slightly more rounded.

3. Starting halfway between your first petal, draw a curved line to start your second petal

4. Finish the second petal with a curved line connecting at the base.

5. Connect the first two petals with a small upside-down V in the center.

6. Draw three upside-down Vs in the center of the base of the flower where the stem will connect.

7. Draw two curved lines to make the stem.

8. Draw the first leaf which is broad at the base and tapers at the tip.

9. Draw a second leaf on the opposite side. Your leaves can be symmetrical if you like, or smaller, as shown.

10. Add lines to the petals and leaves to add dimension.

 

Daisy

1. Start with a small circle.

2. Draw petals on each side of the circle.

3. Add 2 more petals on the opposite sides

4. Continue adding petals across from each other to round out the flower.

5. Between each petal add a second layer of petals. They will look like they are underneath the first layer.

6. Finish the daisy by adding lines down the center of each petal and dots in the center of the flower.
