Did you know that one of the most popular things drawn by artists is flowers? The reason why this is true is because flowers come in such a variety of different forms and shapes that is believably why an artist is intrigued to draw them. In this article, there are step by step instructions as to how to draw the flowers from basic shapes you see every day.

1) Drawing Basic Shapes!

There are a variety of several flowers across the whole world. It might take you a while to choose which particular flower you want to begin with because there is just too many for you to come to a decision. If you’re just a starter, it is recommended that you first test yourself with a simple drawing.

 

Look at the photo above. Doesn’t it seem simple to sketch? This is because when you take a closer inspection at the flowers, the only things you can see is basic shapes which make your art work easier. Let us take a look at two pictures of a daisy.

1) 2)

The first picture is a real image of a daisy while the second image shows an illustration of a daisy flower made up of basic circle and oval shapes.

1) Draw The Basics!

The very first task to raise your courage is to analyse a picture of a flower and on a rough sheet of paper, sketch out any shapes that you discover. Second, open your sketch book and simply draw the shapes which form the petals. By now you would have already drawn out the most essential part of the image. Remember to sketch the shapes down using a light pencil. You don’t want the lines to remain when your picture is complete.

2) Start the Actual Drawing!

Once all the shapes have been sketched, it’s time you start on the realistic drawing of the flower. Lightly, draw the first petals within the shape. You’re likely to make errors during the process, avoid drawing the petals too hard until you know the picture is coming across correctly. Light drawing can also help you get a better feeling for delicate petals. Everything does not need to be accurate within the shapes as long as you know what you’re doing.

3) Finish with the Shadows!

The final stage of the lesson is to finish off the drawing by sketching out the lights and darks of the picture, shadows and the folds and curves of every petal. Imagine you’re seeing the flower from a viewpoint; portray both the light and dark shadows of each petal as well as the flower in whole and how it would appear in reality. The sun might be shining down on this flower on a particular angle which may shadow areas of the back and bottom. There is a likelihood that this could go wrong, draw the features lightly until it’s all correct. Then you may choose to erase the shapes that were sketched at the beginning, go over the drawing and the shadows with a darker pencil and your work will be complete.

Conclusion

Without much experience, a person would think drawing a flower would be fit for a professional. From the steps above, drawing any flower doesn’t really seem difficult at all. It can be done without much work thanks to the simple pictures of shapes.

I love to draw. I used to do a lot of drawing when I was younger. My mom was a tremendous artist that never did anything with her work. Her mother was also an artist that worked in oil paintings. I remember having a painting she did and it was framed in an antique gold frame.. it was beautiful.. it got burned up in the fire we had... it's all I had of her.. i never met her.. she died before I was born... Thanks for the lesson.
