How To Draw Flowers: Easy Ways To Draw Simple Flowers
If you want to learn how to draw flowers in a pot, I’ll show you a simple design that you can draw in just a few minutes. You won’t need any special drawing supplies; all you’ll need is a regular pencil, eraser, and black marker.
Step 1: Draw the flower pot
The shapes don’t have to be perfect; if you think it’s too straight, you can fill in or darken certain areas.
Step 2: Draw the petals
Begin by drawing a circle in the shape of a flower, then adding petals with coloured pencils or watercolours to make it look more like a real flower.
Step 4: Attach the stem
Next, add a stem to the flower by drawing two straight lines running down from the top of the flower to the bottom of the pot. You don’t have to draw a straight stem; you can choose any style you want, such as a curved stem running from the right or left.
Step 5. Add the leaves
Draw a small curved line on the right side of the flower and draw a petal shape around that line. Draw another small line on the other side of the flower and repeat as you did with the other leaf. SEE ALSO: How To Draw Leaves: 21 Best Tutorials For Beginners
Step 6: Draw smaller ovals in the flower petals
You can add these smaller petals in the middle of the flower petals to give it more detail. Simply draw a stretched oval shape (or a smaller petal shape) using the middle circle as a guide, and repeat for each petal until you have another smaller flower design.
Step 7: Add lines to the smaller petals
Next, I usually shade in the petals, either by coloring the entire petal or by drawing a few lines in the petals to give it more definition and make the flower drawing stand out.
Step 8: Draw more petals
Adding more petals to your flower drawing is a simple and easy way to make it look bigger and better. Simply draw half circles by joining one petal to the next, and continue around the flower until all of the petals have been joined by the half circles.
Step 9: Add smaller flowers to the pot
Don’t leave your flower alone; add some company with a few tiny flowers! Simply draw a few rough flower shapes a little further away from the pot and connect them with a curved line to the flower pot.
Step 10: Flower pot and leaf detail
This step is entirely optional, but if you want to add a little more detail to the flower pot, simply draw a few of these shapes in the pot, as well as three V shapes to each of the leaves to make them look like stems.
Step 11: Draw the floor
Draw two lines around the pot to add the floor or surface area, then sketch a few more lines in an angle for some extra shading that will give the pot a shadow.
Step 12: Further details (optional)
To finish the flower drawing, I added a few more half circles and used the same pattern as the smaller petals in the middle. You can do the same or leave it plain like the last step.
