Would you like to learn how to draw a cartoon rose bush? This plant-based drawing tutorial will assist you in drawing a rose bush outline in no time.

Someone once described the act of giving someone cut flowers in this way: "I love you, now watch this die." In other words, cut flower bouquets don't last very long.

The alternative, of course, is giving someone a living plant! So, instead of gifting your sweetheart a dozen roses, you could give him or her a whole living rose bush instead. In theory, the rose bush will produce flowers for years to come.

The style of rose bush pictured in this illustration is called a tree rose. It has been trimmed so that the greenery is a compact ball on top of a trunk - resembling a tree.

Another type of rose that is great for gifting is the miniature rose. This tiny shrub can be kept indoors in a pot. It produces small, perfect roses that are less than an inch across.

Take your time learning how to draw this cartoon rose bush. As they say - stop and smell the roses!

Rose Bush step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 01

1. Begin your rose bush outline by drawing the flower pot. For the top of the pot, draw a shape like a curved and rounded rectangle. Enclose another rounded rectangle beneath it. Then, in the upper section, use two overlapping curved lines to draw a double-pointed shape.

This is the dirt in the pot. Draw a squiggly line in the dirt, and extend a pair of lines upward to form the plant's stem. Erase as necessary. Draw another curved line on the side - a branch.
