# 9 ways to draw a flower

Flowers are a great subject for beginner artists, but also for professionals. Their symmetrical characteristics make them a fun exercise, whether for a personal project or an exercise to learn to juxtapose overlapping shapes.

## Steps

### Method 1 of 9: Draw a sunflower

#### Step 1. Draw a large circle

Then draw a smaller circle in the middle.

#### Step 4. Repeat the previous step

Draw more hearts until you have completely covered the edge of the inner circle.

#### Step 5. Add more petals

This will cover the empty spaces at the tips.

#### Step 6. Draw intersecting diagonal lines

They pass inside the small circle.

### Method 2 of 9: Draw a rose with its stem

#### Step 1. Draw a curved line

Sketch another slightly larger one below the first one. Continue until you have drawn three similar shapes.

#### Step 2. Draw a curved vertical line

It represents the stem. Add a leaf to one side.

#### Step 3. Sketch the outline of the rose

Start adding the petals. Use a U shape first.

#### Step 4. Sketch the petals

They should appear to overlap from the first U.

#### Step 6. Use the last U to guide you

Sketch petals similar to the first and second U.

• You can now add as many petals as you want to create a more beautiful rose.

#### Step 8. Add thorns to the stem

Instead, draw sharp angles. Add details to the leaf of the rose and don't forget the little teeth on the edge.

### Method 4 of 9: Draw a daffodil

#### Step 1. Draw an oval for the outer edge of the leaves

Add two parallel lines to connect the parallel lines at the bottom as shown in the picture.

#### Step 2. Draw a smaller connected oval at the top of the parallel lines

This will be the top of the flower.

#### Step 3. Create a sketch of the flower and leaves

Follow the example in the illustration.

#### Step 5. Draw shadows and defining lines

Then color the flower.

### Method 5 of 9: Draw a cosmos flower

#### Step 3. Sketch the petals all around the larger circle

They should be almost the same size and shape.

#### Step 5. Draw semicircles around the smaller circle

This will create a flower-shaped structure. Then you can add something to it in the middle.

#### Step 6. Draw the basic outline of the petals

The petals on the front should stand out clearly above the petals on the back.

### Method 6 of 9: Draw a tulip

#### Step 1. Sketch a circle for the flower

Also draw a long, curved line for the stem.

#### Step 2. Add guide lines for the petals and leaves

Draw two petals on the front and another on the back of the two petals to have three in total. The leaves of the tulip are long and they are not straight, which is why the guide lines should be curved lines.

#### Step 6. Add more details

Draw lines on the leaves and petals for a better result.

### Method 7 of 9: Draw a simple daisy

#### Step 2. Draw a larger circle

Shape it into a disk to remember the basic outline of the daisy each time you draw one.

#### Step 4. Draw the petals with two lines, up and down

Always start drawing opposite petals.

### Method 8 of 9: Draw a basic flower

#### Step 2. Draw a larger circle

Its center should be the same as that of the small circle.

#### Step 3. Draw the flower petals with curved lines

Use the circles to guide you.

#### Step 5. Draw more petals on the empty space of the circle

They do not all have to be the same length.

#### Step 6. Draw the stem and leaves

Use curved lines.

### Method 9 of 9: Draw a cartoon flower

#### Step 1. Draw a vertical oval

Under the oval, draw a thin rectangle that will serve as a stem for the flower.

#### Step 2. Draw two curves on the oval

One of them is on the left and the other is on the right.

#### Step 3. Draw lines at the bottom of the oval

They start at the bottom of the oval and go in all four directions. Also draw a curved loop at the bottom of the oval.

#### Step 4. Draw curves connected to the lines

This will form the petals of the flower.

#### Step 5. Draw curves starting from the top

These lines at the top of the oval look like a bud.

#### Step 6. Draw another petal

Follow the same principle and add the same lines along the oval.

#### Step 7. Add details with the pen

Erase unnecessary lines.
