How to Draw a Rose
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to draw roses in a variety of styles. Roses are beautiful flowers with prickly thorns that florists remove before using them in bouquets, and the petals and other parts that when drawn together give them a “rose-like” appearance.
1. The Structure of a Rose
Have you ever wondered what a flower’s various parts look like?
2. How to draw the rose head
This time, I’m going to draw two roses from different perspectives: a top-down view and an angle.
Consider them in various shapes, such as inside, middle, or outside.
Sketching to understand the shape of a rose
Next, I’ll draw a rough draft of the rose as seen from above, using an angle and an ellipse to express the thickness, softness, and gorgeousness of the petals. Add a wine-glass shape to the bottom to complete part B. Draw a bird’s eye view of the rose using an angle and an ellipse to express the overlapping of the petals. Part A is now complete.
Part A’s petals are drawn with thin lines to convey a thin and delicate appearance, while the lines of the curved back petals should be sharper. Feel free to experiment with different combinations of petals to find the rose you like best.
How to paint a rose
After you’ve finished the line art, it’s time to color our rose. Roses have complex overlapping petals, so keep that in mind when painting shadows and highlights. Painting shadows and highlights along the lines of the petals and leaves gives it a more realistic look.
3. Simplified Rose
There are two ways to build up the shape of a rose: the first involves drawing a triangle and then surrounding it with layers of triangles, and the second involves drawing soft petals attached to each other.
Roses are a complicated flower, but breaking it down into parts makes it much easier to draw. Different roses have different numbers of petals and frilly shapes, so let’s draw them all and see which one is best for your art project.
