Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Rose Flower
Start by drawing an open sided oval in the center of your page. Draw the oval as if the upper right quarter has been erased.
Use three overlapping arcs to form the first petals. These should form a shape similar to a lumpy circle.
As you continue to add curved petal lines, note how you can create a “fold” detail in the petal by allowing one line to extend into the center of the petal.
Use curved lines to draw another petal on the upper right hand side. Again, let the upper line extend to form a petal fold.
Now, add some detail. Place a small curved line within each of the outer five petals, radiating from the center of the flower, two-thirds of the way to the edge of the petal. These lines give the drawing depth.
Use two lines to form a curved triangle shape at the upper left corner of the flower. Use two more lines to form a triangular leaflet, slightly overlapping the first.
Between the leaflets, you will outline the leaves. Start with an arcing line for one side of the leaf. Draw a loose S-curve to form the other side of the leaf. Draw three leaves in this way, evenly spaced around the flower.
Add veins to the leaves. In each leaf half, draw three to seven straight lines radiating from the central vein to the edge of the leaf.
