In this drawing lesson, we will show you how to draw a rose flower – probably the most famous flower on planet Earth.
Previously, the team of Drawingforall.net has repeatedly shown you how to draw a rose. Each time we tried to come up with new techniques that will help you in drawing a rose. This time we also decided to show you a new way of drawing a rose, slightly different from what we showed in the previous drawing lessons.
So let’s proceed directly to the steps of the tutorial on how to draw a rose flower.
Let’s start by sketching out the basic outlines for the future rose flower drawing. Sketch out the bud of the rose as a circle and the stem as a simple long line. All details of this step should be done with the lightest, almost invisible lines possible. The drawing of a rose at this stage should somewhat resemble a Chupa Chups.
Now it’s time to start giving the rose drawing a more accurate look. To do this, start sketching the outlines of the petals of the bud. Now you should sketch out the outer petals of the rose. They should be the largest in the entire bud. Do not try to exactly repeat all the outlines of the bud, as in our example.
Continue creating the outlines of the petals, but this time the ones in the center of the bud. Create the petals using very general lines, without trying to make the bud of the rose too detailed at this stage. The outer petals should surround the inner petals.
The previous steps were all about creating the basic outline of the rose. Now is the time to start creating details using sharper and darker lines. Start with the inner petals, carefully tracing the lines and making them clearer. As you create the final lines, gently erase the previously created construction lines.
Now do the same, but with the outer petals of the rosebud, that is, carefully trace them, giving them a finishing and clean look. The contours of the outer petals should be more uneven than the inner ones. Don’t forget to draw sepals under the bud to give the rose drawing a more natural look.
Add another line to the rose stem to give it a more voluminous look. At the bottom of the stem, draw the cut line that looks like an oval. In the middle of the stem, draw a couple of short lines of twigs. You can leave the stem of the rose smooth, or add thorns.
Draw the outer contours of the leaves with a few wavy lines. To give the rose drawing a more natural and realistic look, draw the veins on the leaves using short lines. In the process of drawing a rose, constantly check the correctness of the drawing by looking at it through a mirror and moving it away from you.
Erase any remaining guidelines from your rose drawing, and draw shadows to give it a more finished and realistic look. Start with darker areas and gradually work towards lighter ones. To learn more about how to draw shadows, visit our article on light and shadow.
Drawing a rose using our drawing tutorial is not the end of the learning process. You can consolidate and improve your rose flower drawing skills. To achieve this, try a few things.
First, try drawing a rose flower with slightly modified details. For example, make another bud or stem. Add more shadows and highlights, which will give your rose drawing a more voluminous and beautiful look. Next, try drawing some roses and placing them in a jug.
All this will help consolidate the knowledge gained in this rose flower drawing tutorial.
