How to draw a rose for beginners

If you were looking for the best guide on how to draw a rose for beginners, then you came to the right address. With this very simplified drawing lesson, you will learn to draw realistic roses very fast and easy.

Step 1

First, we depict the “skeleton” of our rose drawing. To do this right, we outline an oval shape (similar to an egg) for the bud and a long vertical line for the stalk. Make all these lines with very light pressing on the pencil, not trying to draw perfectly smooth and clear lines, since in the future we will delete all these lines.

Step 2

Let’s start sketching the petals from its very core. Closer to the top of the oval (or egg) from the first step, depict a short curved line. Surround this line with more lines. The petals of our rose are sketched in such a way that each next line of the petal should surround the previous line.

Step 3

Continue to create new petals. Each next line should be larger than the previous one, and as mentioned earlier, should embrace the previous petal. Do not forget that you need to use very light, almost transparent lines.

Step 4

In the fourth step, we will sketch out the outermost flower petals. These are the largest and widest petals that extend beyond the outlines of the oval from the first step. They should literally surround all other petals.

Step 5

Let’s now draw sepals, that is, the details of the rose that are directly under the bud. Now we make the stem of the rose thicker by adding another line repeating the auxiliary guiding line of the stem from the first step.

Step 6

With the help of a few simple lines, we sketch the leaves of a rose. Try not to make them too even and the same, because we are depicting a real rose, not an artificial one. The basic contours of the rose are ready, and from the step number seven we will deal with the final detailing of the rose.

Step 7

To make our sketch beautiful and realistic, we will gently circle the rose petals. Let’s start with the inner petals, making them very dark and crisp. To make them really natural and realistic, let’s make their edges uneven but very smooth.

Step 8

Do the same with the outer petals. They should also become dark and clear, and their outlines also uneven and very smooth. Make the lower edge of the bud rounded and smooth, creating outlines similar to a vase or a woman’s waist.

Step 9

Now let’s work with the rose stalk. Draw out the lines, making them dark and clear, as in the example under this text. That the stalk should not be as even as a cocktail tube. A slight unevenness should give your rose natural look.

Step 10

Not only the bud and stem of this wonderful flower, but also its petals should look natural. To make them look like real ones, make the edges zigzag and slightly uneven. As well, we need to add the veins on the leaves.

Step 11

The drawing of our beautiful rose is almost complete and looks quite realistic. Let’s take the final touches and add some shadows to make it even more voluminous and realistic. Using standard hatching, add shadows in the least lit areas.
