Rose Drawing Lesson and Advice
This rose drawing lessons is not the easiest thing in the world to do, but if you break it down into its parts then it will be more manageable. Remember to draw lightly, especially on this complex shape because I guarantee you will need to erase some lines later on.
Step One Inner Petals
Ok, so imagine this circle as the very middle of the flower. Think of how a rose looks when all of the petals are closed and wrapped tightly together. That's kind of what this circle represents. It's just a shape, but with many petals wrapped around it. In the next steps of the drawing we'll start to add more layers of petals as they have wrapped around the middle.
Step Two Basic Forms
Step Three Getting Complex
Next, start drawing the petals that wrap around the middle circle that we drew in the first step. If you can think of these shapes as wrapping around an egg it may help you to draw them so they looks more believable depending on how you see the drawing image in your mind. Once you have drawn those two inner shapes, there is two larger petals to add to the outside of the shapes.
Step 4 Petal Details
Finish off this step by adjusting the shape of the three petals we drew in the previous step so that the lines are wavier. Add one last petal along the back of the flower behind the middle of the central circular shape from step one near the top and you're finished.
